Interesting little Augusta sidelight: Mayor Bob Young of the City of Augusta has written Martha Burk to ask she change the name of her shame-on-you website, Augustadiscriminates.org, saying it's demeaning the city's image. PostWatch reader Steven Garrett directs us to this Augusta Chronicle .pdf image of a Dec. 20 letter from Young to Burk in which he notes that Burk's "disagreement" is with Augusta National Golf Club. He continues:

...I take exception to the domain name that you have chosen. The domain suggests the City of Augusta and the people who live here discriminate. That could not be farther from the truth.

For four years the City of Augusta has been a leading participant in the International City of Character program. For the past year and a half our Human Relations Commission has been working with the U.S. Justice Department to resolve racial issues in our city. [I have no idea what that refers to--PW]. We have a diverse community where discrimination is not practiced or sanctioned as a matter of public policy....
