Our democracy can no longer tolerate biased judges like Jerry W. Baxter. That is a position that is supposed to hold the “balance” of life in its hands. It is not a position that sees only black and white. It is the likes of this that is stunting our democracy and the growth of this great nation.

Seek ideas to fix traffic congestion
I was pleased to see three columns pertaining to traffic congestion in Tuesday’s AJC (“A choice that may save money,” “State could lead in eliminating congestion” and “No-wait traffic solution,” Opinion, April 14). I avidly support anything that will relieve our traffic problem and the bad air quality it generates, while reducing our carbon footprint and reliance on fossil fuels. I use MARTA frequently and support it wholeheartedly. However, ridesharing and carpooling can also help reduce congestion. MARTA currently has an excellent free app, but the idea of a universal app is indeed interesting, so that one can integrate various modes of transport in the metro area. We must fix our traffic problem, fix our air quality and reduce our use of fossil fuels. This is so easy and so important.
