but, according to this article we're screwed no matter what happens. Even if there is a moratorium and no one else moves to the Atlanta region, there isn't enough water to go around. Throughout Atlanta's history, there have always been development detractors, yet without it, Atlanta wouldn't be, for better or worse, the city it is today. Guess we should all start packing up the U-Hauls before Atlanta becomes a ghost town.
Finally, someone in Atlanta media is talking about this "gorilla in the room" in a rational manner! These issues need to be talked about and addressed. Thank you! Let's hope this will start a productive conversation in Atlanta among its residents, media and leaders.
The mayor is knee-deep in all of this... she has a former son-in-law that was part of the "black mafia" cocaine ring that involved at least two murders. Ex-husband who owns a concession business at Hartsfield who was laundering some of that "black mafia" drug money through her daughter. Not to mention his business somehow forgot to pay the state sales taxes he was collecting.
Fact: poor people take more out of the system than they contribute. Atlanta has dealt with that fact for too many decades... please don't try to reverse the "progress". Housing projects DON'T WORK. Do you remember what midtown and downtown were like just 10-15 years ago? Piedmont Park was run down and a place for prostitutes and druggies. How are neighborhoods like the Old Fourth Ward a good thing? Let's not go backwards, please!!!
This is all bullsh*t! Can anyone prove how any of the "quotes" are false? They're simply opinions. Why are we shooting the messengers???
Who else would hire the product of Atlanta City Schools besides the city itself?
I ask you how mixed was the neighborhood and schools you grew up in? Your dad may be an honest man, but the true motivation here is to sell a book. Again, Suggs and your father are just two elitist white journalist who know very little about the African American "plight" except what they see from their respective Ivory Towers.
