There are two Georgias-- Atlanta Metro and the rest of Georgia. I am a voice from the "Other Georgia." As a self-avowed liberal Democrat, I write my views in a folksy, southern, humorous style. I write an opinion column in the Monroe County Reporter. Read the columns here.

Welcome to My Blog - Unfair and Unbalanced
WELCOME TO MY NEW & IMPROVED BLOG
Updated on 2/13/15 I'm back with the Monroe County Reporter but will continue this Blog.
“There’s more than one way to skin a cat.”This saying is so old, nobody knows for sure
who first uttered it.Why one would
want to skin a cat, I cannot imagine, but we all know that it means there’s
more than one way to accomplish something.
Some of you know that I recently had a short-lived stint as
an opinion columnist for the Monroe County Reporter presenting the
liberal prospective on events.I
embarked on this venture with trepidation knowing the political make-up of the
publisher and the community.However,
much to my surprise, I learned there were more people than I could imagine who
were hungry to read something with substance and facts.
So, after parting ways with the MCR, this blog is my
attempt to accomplish something in a different way.In all fairness to the Editor of the Monroe County Reporter,
he did not censor my columns, unless you call just not publishing them a form
of censorship.Regardless of his
reasons, my columns were written about current events and lost their
meaningfulness if not printed in a timely manner.
Now I am self-published.I set my own deadlines.I am
unfiltered.But, with this new found
freedom comes a challenge.I need READERS!
So that my voice may be heard, I need your help.Please share my blog postings with your
friends via Facebook, E-mail, or Twitter.Oh, and don’t forget “word of mouth.”My blog address is easy to remember, www.marilynlangford.com.
I would also like to hear from you about issues you feel
need to be addressed.
I don’t expect you to always agree with me but please fight
for my right to express what I believe.You may be surprised at how many people agree with this left leaning
