Re: “Braves exec: 'It’s just very narrow minded to say' that the Braves shouldn't get a tax exemption

i thought my anger at the Atlanta screw job would subside but it only gets worse because these guys are such assholes.

Re: “Adair Park vacant school's sale caught in crossfire over APS/Beltline debt

Nice. Why to directly insult the brand new APS superintendent. That's the spirit Kasim!

Re: “First Slice 2/3/15: Atlanta vendors can return to selling goods outside Turner Field

So Reed took away the street vendors income, I'm guessing at the request of the Braves who turn around and screw everyone and now the vendors get to come back to sell jerseys for a lame duck team with minor league talent that no one cares about anymore. Thanks!

Re: “Reed: 'I want to get a deal' with renegotiated APS-Beltline agreement

I don't know that Mary Norwood vs Kasim Reed should be the standard used to judge performance. Hopefully, one day, we will have a true leader who puts the city first.

Re: “Reed: 'I want to get a deal' with renegotiated APS-Beltline agreement

If he was an ass that accomplished things for the city it would be one thing. But he screws things up largely because he is an ass and people say FU and give up. I mean what are his accomplishments? What does he have to show for all this grand standing and attitude?

Re: “Reed: 'I want to get a deal' with renegotiated APS-Beltline agreement

"I'll do a fair deal tomorrow," he said. "But that bad agreement is not going to be honored. The balance of payments has to be recalibrated so we can afford it. ... I've looked at the data, and I know I'm right."

I wish he was talking about ParkAtlanta instead of our friggin public schools. The guy needs therapy. When you end every argument with "I know I'm right" then you've got mental problems. I blame myself for voting for this guy. This bad mayor will not be honored. I've looked at his record and I know I'm right.

Re: “Bye bye, bad development along the Beltline?

I like the Beltline and all but the project has become like so many other Atlanta efforts with half commitments and a goal to 'reshape' the city. Ignoring that fact that many of us love the city. I'd love to have a beltline of actual transit and improved walkability and bike lanes, but now the emphasis, like always, is on real estate development.

“The Beltline, it’s an opportunity for Atlanta to do a whole lot of place-making,” Dickens says. “You don’t get that real estate back. You gotta do it right when you’re doing it, and you want it to be remarkable.”

This is exactly what has been going on for 50 years. The idea that what we have isn't good enough and we're arrogant to believe that we will tear it all down and build a new Atlanta. This is why we are losing historic structures at such a rapid pace.

The Beltline could be great if we focus on improving our neighborhoods and historic places rather than replacing them.
