With the election's end, 'truthiness' improves

The election cycle might have ended, but the old Truth-O-Meter kept spinning last week at AJC PolitiFact Georgia. Topics ranged from animal abuse to the national debt to high school graduation rates. And just about the time Georgians were finishing off the last of the Halloween candy and beginning to plan for the Thanksgiving feast, we took a look at childhood obesity. It was an unusually "truthy" week, as it turned out. We'd like to take some credit for keeping the power brokers a little more honest. But then we'd probably have to give ourselves a "Pants on Fire." We hear the state Legislature will be returning to Atlanta in a few months. So it's fitting, we had a bit of a break from the usual mendacity. The Truth-O-Meter needs all the rest it can get before the General Assembly's calamitous return. In the meantime, we'll keep the Truth-O-Meter primed.
