It's a weekly show. It's an hour long. Each week we choose a theme and invite different writers and performers to contribute items on the theme. The mission of This American Life is to document everyday life in this country ... A documentary show for people who normally hate documentaries ... A public radio show for people who don't necessarily care for public radio.

Georgia voters will decide on Nov. 8 whether they want to change the makeup of the Judicial Qualifications Commission,  the agency that investigates ethics complaints against Georgia judges.

State lawmakers would get to appoint the majority of the seven-member board if the amendment passes. Currently, they appoint none. The board members serving now were appointed by the State Bar Association, the state Supreme Court and the governor.
