A reality show starring the mayor, Ronald Reagan statue as political prop and a city budget with some major holes
In Tbilisi, Georgia:
- The country's first-ever jury ruled on a grisly murder case.
- Mayor Gigi Ugulava and heads of three government-friendly national banks review loan applications for new businesses on a weekly reality show called Employ and Be Employed.
- The city's projected 2012 budget is missing several key bits of information - the budget for whole programs was left blank, which a city councilwoman calls "corruptive."
- At the unveiling of a Ronald Reagan statue, President Saakashvili took a jab at his northern neighbor, saying the statue highlighted Georgia's affinity for democracy.
