Rep. Bobby Franklin Dies

Shaker ElphieLives emails, which I am sharing with her permission:
GA State Rep Bobby Franklin has passed away from natural causes. Since he was featured a couple of times earlier this year, I thought that I would pass this on. I do not celebrate his passing, and feel great sympathy his wife and children. I am, however, relieved that I will no longer have to hear about the horrible anti woman legislation that he was constantly introducing. I also understand the wish to not speak ill of the dead, but it is sickening to hear him described as kind, gentle, and principled. I would avoid the comments on these articles, ajc.com comment sections are frequently cesspools of nastiness.
I can't really add much to that. My condolences to those who loved him.
