Re: “Georgia: Corps' lake plan holds too much water

I rarely hear a single word in Georgia about water conservation. Even in dry summers. Implementing a water conservation campaign should be a prerequisite to any consideration of more water coming to Atlanta.

Re: “Water wars redux

I agree with SanityKnocking. I have lived in GA for 8 years now and have never heard word one about water conservation. I have lived other places where they have water issues and fight over access (Texas, Arizona) but at least in those they implement conservation measures and talk about saving water (to a point, they aren't perfect). This attitude of Georgia politicians that "it's all ours and we ain't doin' nothing to change." is abhorrent.

Re: “Sonny Perdue's legacy? How about 'debt?'

Same old same old in Georgia. We can look forward to more of this when our new criminal - oops, I mean governor- is sworn in.

Re: “After biting off a mouthful, David Railey reheats Corndogorama

Curious this hipster/big business alliance manufactured by Papst Blue Ribbon. There are at least two "mural" in east atl that are actually just PBR advertisements - I wonder who got paid to let PBR paint their buildings... It is corporate america exploiting the alternative masses - it is TERRIBLE beer that, through great underground marketing, has become hip to drink. Too bad the youth aren't interested in supporting local craft brews.

Re: “Swimming with whale sharks at the Georgia Aquarium

Upon my first trip to the Georgia Aquarium I was shocked to see that there was nary a mention of conservation, habitat destruction, endangered species, etc. among the exhibits (they have since included sparse mention of these important topics in a FEW places). This observation led me to look up the aquarium's mission statement. I was shocked that the first thing it mentioned was "entertainment." That did a lot to explain the theme-park style of the aquarium - and to explain the continued exhibiting of whale sharks in spite of a lack of information regarding their habitat needs (not to mention their new diving program). The Georgia Aquarium is indeed entertaining, but I reserve my RESPECT for institutions like the Monterey Bay Aquarium, whose mission is to "inspire conservation of the oceans."
