I didn’t know that you could get questions answered about things that happened in the news. The AJC, Atlanta Journal Constitution, has a feature to where you can ask questions about the news and get answers. So if something happens and you never hear any follow-ups, then you can just ask the AJC. They will try to get the answer for you.
