Re: “UPDATE: Kelvin Cochran sues the mayor over wrongful termination due to his religious beliefs

Many a times when we are searching for a job, we are unsure of how address any previous employment issues like termination or gaps on our resumes. We want to make ourselves look good, but we also don’t want to be caught up in a lie. No matter what led to your termination, it’s important to be honest and confident.

Re: “First Slice 7/25/16: How can older civil rights groups help young activists?

That mailer, (and the not so subtle comparison to a 'house negro'), is brutal.
Surprised we are not seeing many more people not coming out against it...maybe I shouldn't be.
Kudos to Torpy for his reporting, and being a political gadfly in general, and to Mr Wheatley for reminding us this is actually taking place.

The soccer field is a great idea. There is a technology that can be incorporated into the fields that utilizes the kinetic energy of the players to light the fields at night, would be pretty cool if they included that in the design.

Broch - Gotta agree with you there sir. The Israelis are the best in counter terrorism training; my only question is, so much concentration on counter terrorism, when they could invest the money more in increasing the force, paying them more, etc...?

Re: “Residents, preservationists facepalm over Engineer's Bookstore demolition plan

The main point is not whether the building is significantly historic or not, but rather that demolishing it in favor of a gas station would be a crime.

Re: “Residents, preservationists facepalm over Engineer's Bookstore demolition plan

When I first moved to Atlanta in 1994 and lived in the Artery, having the original buildings intact hugely informed my thinking about history and continue to have an influence today. I’m writing to object to the demolition of the Engineer’s Bookstore at 748 Marietta Street NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30318 in Fulton to make way for a common gas station and convenience store.

This demolition would be a devastating insult to future generations understanding of the historic industrial energies of Atlanta’s past by irreversibly detracting visually from a distinct, vibrant, well-cared for and prized historic building fabric. The east side of Marietta Street in the 1960s -1980s has already been devastated by Georgia Tech Expansion, but at that time there was scant knowledge of the irreplaceable value that respected and well documented older buildings in a historic fabric add to a city. A gas station at this location would 100% overturn the huge energy and investment by the Marietta Street Artery Association into this area over the past two decades. This important neighborhood vision is an urban community of adaptively re-used former industrial buildings, and appropriately designed new structures, with a focus on developing for a pedestrian and bicycle scale that weaves sustainably into downtown. Neighborhood planning projects include:
 Upper Westside LCI Update, 2009: Change zoning to meet planned future land use
 Connect Atlanta, 2009: Marietta Street is a core bicycle connection
 Cycle Atlanta Corridor E, 2015: Marietta Street is a core bicycle connection
 PATH Foundation Tech Parkway Greenway, 2016: under construction

Not only would the community lose an amazing storefront with decades of character and history, and a recognized building within a National Register Historic District, but a gas-station is an incompatible use within the planned corridor and could easily be relocated with no harm done.
Please help us preserve this historically and visually important building!

Re: “First Slice 7/24/16: Buckhead condo hi-rise skirts water and sewer bills, resident says

""It says something profound about the state of our nation — and our fair city of Atlanta — that no one trusted actual residents and community members to ask questions. The event was so tightly scripted that no one — including us — was allowed to ask questions."

And it never occurred to VOX they were being used as part of a captive and silent audience so the sponsors could claim transparency? And it never occurred to them to stand up and ask some questions?

"Why does an Atlanta police officer have to travel so far to receive counter-terrorism training? What exactly are they learning? And why Israel?"

Because the Israelis are the best in the world at counter-terrorism, and you had better hope the Atlanta police learned well.

Why should the rich pay for water and sewer in Atlanta? Isn't paying one's fair share only for us common folks?

Re: “The waitress anxiety dream: Will it never end?

Omg, glad to find this thread. I was a waiter for 12 years and have not waited tables since 1989!
The last week I have had two very detailed in the weeds dreams. Like other people said I could draw the layout and what was happening. These dreams are draining and when I wake up I am left with that horrible feeling when you cannot get the task you needed accomplished.

Re: “Fulton officials to mull Central Atlanta Library renovation proposal

So $40-$55 million of taxpayer's money is to be spent to add more space to the already overbuilt Downtown commercial real estate market. In a few years this building will be sold at a loss, like Underground and the Civic Center. But that is not this Library Board's problem - they will just kick the can down the road to their successors.

Re: “Fulton officials to mull Central Atlanta Library renovation proposal

Ha, a library with very few "traditional library services"--great idea, if you are an architect. What about the people who pay for library services with their tax dollars?

I love the beautiful pictures of empty space, but this plan is a lot like the Monty Python "Architects Sketch" (…

'Mr. Wiggin: This is a 12-story block combining classical neo-Georgian features with the efficiency of modern techniques. The tenants arrive here and are carried along the corridor on a conveyor belt in extreme comfort, past murals depicting Mediterranean scenes, towards the rotating knives. The last twenty feet of the corridor are heavily soundproofed. The blood pours down these chutes and the mangled flesh slurps into these...
Client 1: Excuse me.
Mr. Wiggin: Yes?
Client 1: Did you say 'knives'?
Mr. Wiggin: Rotating knives, yes.
Client 2: Do I take it that you are proposing to slaughter our tenants?
Mr. Wiggin: ...Does that not fit in with your plans?
Client 1: Not really. We asked for a simple block of flats.
Mr. Wiggin: Oh. I hadn't fully divined your attitude towards the tenants. You see I mainly design slaughter houses.
Clients: Ah.
Mr. Wiggin: Pity.
Clients: Yes.'
