    A Brazilian flight attendant working for United Airlines has posed as a late Atlanta boy for two decades, according to federal prosecutors. 49-year-old Ricardo Cesar Guedes is accused of stealing the identity of a late Atlanta boy, William Ericson Ladd, who died in an accident in 1979 in Washington state.

Guedes, a Sao Paulo native, then used the dead boy’s name to get a mortgage in Texas and got married. The complaint lists Guedes’ occupation as a...

    First came passage of one of the nation’s most restrictive voting bills. Then came efforts to overhaul the number of elected offices in one of Georgia’s largest counties. Now, with the pending passage of a new congressional map, Republicans have taken another step toward dismantling the Atlanta-area engine that turned Georgia blue, powering President Joe Biden to victory in 2020 and flipping control of the Senate to Democrats. Just as Georgia has emerged as a pivotal swing state, the GOP-controlled legislature has gone to extraordinary lengths to overhaul election administration, rewrite election rules and redraw political lines in the fast-growing...

    “Earthgrazers” are fireball meteors with a trajectory so shallow that they skim long distances across the upper atmosphere, NASA says. The fireball appeared Tuesday, Nov. 9, around 6:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, officials say, and was “detected by three NASA meteor cameras in the region.” It entered the atmosphere “at a very shallow angle — only 5 degrees from the horizontal.” In fact, it was flying for so long that NASA had to recalculate its data to determine how far it traveled across the planet. “The meteor was first seen at an altitude of 55 miles above the Georgia town...

During his sentencing Wednesday, Hankerson, who pleaded guilty in July,...

According to Todd Starnes: And there’s no doubt that leftists have been triggered from coast to coast like Phil Newberry, a columnist for Associated Press. “Simply put, the Braves and their co-conspirator are on the wrong side of history, not unlike those who continue to defend the Confederate flag and statues as nothing more than peaceful symbols of Southern heritage,” Newberry wrote. ESPN’s Jeff Passan is one of the far-left sports writers who. has called on MLB to “stop the chop.” “The best part of writing...

    Major League Baseball's woke idea in early April apparently was to punish Georgia for what it viewed as its unfair, recently passed voting law by yanking the All-Star Game from Atlanta. At the time, MLB Commissioner Robert Manfred Jr. said the move was "the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport," that pro baseball "fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions at the ballot box," and that "fair access to voting continues to have our game's unwavering support." Georgia's election reforms include requiring absentee ballots be verified with a photo ID and expanding early voting...
