James Garland was a model example of what every American Citizen ought to be, but isn't. He was intelligent, logical, convincing, eminently fair, truthful and courageous in his outlook and arguments, but despite this scientific attitude in debate, the local good old boys in Athens Government and UGA just ignored him and his many good ideas. I can't think of a single one they embraced or adopted, such as fairness in the distribution of services in Athens Clarke County as he and the Charter demanded and he continually advocated but which has been routinely denied to some areas with impunity for decades by the so called "Unified Government of Athens Clarke County, Georgia".
If there is any criticism of James, it is that he was far too polite to these good old boys and girls, who ignored him, his good ideas and his demand for equity and fairness to all.
His untimely death at such a young age is tragic.

I look forward to the time when death is done away with. Revelation 21:4 says:" And he will wipe our every rear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
