Nydia Tisdale, Georgia’s most notorious citizen journalist, crisscrosses the state with a cardboard box containing little red and blue books in the back of her 2003 Honda CRV.

The red one is Georgia’s Sunshine Laws; the blue one is Georgia Law Enforcement and the Open Records Act. Tisdale hands them out, with the earnest enthusiasm of a Jehovah’s Witness distributing The Watchtower, to elected officials in jurisdictions small and large (but mostly small), often right before public meetings.
