John Green, an accomplished local teacher, coach and athletic administrator, died earlier this week at 69 after a five-year battle with colon cancer.

Food trucks unaffiliated with any campaign distribute pizza and sandwiches to voters standing in line in Chicago. Photo: Alex Garcia/AP/Shutterstock Of all the numerous potholes on the path to the ballot box that Georgia Republicans dug in their recent “election security” legislation, one of the oddest, which has earned its sponsors much criticism (from the president of the United States , among others) is a ban on anyone giving food or water to citizens standing in line to vote. It seems gratuitously cruel, particularly given Georgia’s reputation for long voting lines during both early voting and on Election Day, especially in large urban precincts that skew heavily Black and Democratic.
