I've certainly never seen a school bus sliced and re-welded to have a big, open flat section after the first three rows of seating, but that's exactly what a Georgian gubernatorial candidate seems to have built his campaign vehicle out of... toting a statue of a knight playing baseball, no less. » 3/13/14 8:00pm 3/13/14 8:00pm
