Crawford: GSU's Curry supplies missing ingredient

Georgia State University seems to have everything going for it: the second-largest enrollment of any state college, a campus that is revitalizing downtown Atlanta with all the new buildings going up, and a sterling reputation as one of the University System's four research institutions (a status it shares with UGA, Georgia Tech and the Medical College of Georgia).

King: Movies may reflect society’s psyche

I love movies. I've loved them since my parents took me to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. I was 5 years old and hid under the seat during the scary parts. In my teens, when others went to Saturday football games, I could be found at the local cinema.
