Atlanta gets the shaft on homeland security.

What's the difference between Atlanta and Memphis, Buffalo, and Honolulu? Those cities receive homeland security grants; Atlanta doesn't. You know, maybe if our Republican Senator weren't Bush's corrupt bitch and our Democratic Senator didn't pride himself on being a "maverick" by siding with Bush against his fellow Democrats, we'd see some of that money - or at least see the formula used to determine which cities receive grants, so that they could challenge it. As it is, the best they can do is Miller's statement: "I do not consider arbitrarily determining grant funding for states based upon an undisclosed system to be the most equitable strategy."

Yeah, Bush is smarting over that one.
