We know it isn't Pascual Perez.....
I wish I lived in the City Of Atlanta so I could vote against Kasim Reed. He refused to step in to keep the Atlanta Thrashers in town (saying it was a "private business matter" in canned responses Thrashers fans sent to his office) yet is kowtowing to Arthur Blank so the Falcons can get a new stadium in which public money will be used. He touts Atlanta as a sports town, yet wouldn't step in to keep a pro team there. Too bad no candidates worth a damn stepped forward to run against him.
I like the cheap hot sauces like Original Louisiana, Texas Pete, Crystal, etc. on barbecue pork sandwiches as the thin sauce works with the thin BBQ sauce that many places here use on BBQ pork.
I used to like Tabasco red but prefer the green and the chipotle versions.
I like srirachi, I just never get around to picking up a bottle since I don't douse my food with as much hot sauce as I did in my younger days (I used to prefer various habanero hot sauces as some brought the heat but also had a nice natural sweetness to it. ). I refuse to mess with anything containing ghost chilies, as that's a serious heater that had they been more commonplace a decade ago, I probably would have loved.
Krystal does offer onion rings on a seasonal basis; at least they used to. I don't have a Krystal close to me because it was one of several locations that have shuttered in the last couple of years in the Atlanta area and I'm not driving 4+ miles to the nearest location.
If you live in Atlanta and need a White Castle fix, you can drive up to the Nashville area, as there are multiple locations there, nearly all them co-branded with a Church's.
Personally, I wish Jack In The Box would return the Atlanta market (They had some locations here in the late 70s, early 80s.) and the nearest location is in Anderson, SC.
The street is currently named after Henry Ford II, who was the son of Edsel Ford and the grandson of Henry Ford. Henry Ford II was the President of Ford from 1945-1960, Chairman and CEO from 1960-1979 (He stepped down as Chairman in 1980.). The Atlanta Assembly plant opened in 1947, so naming the street after HF2 made sense.
Technically by calling it Porsche Avenue, they could claim they are naming it after the family behind the company and not the company.
The movie starring Morgan Freeman, Robert DeNiro, and Michael Douglas (as well as Kevin Kline) is called "Last Vegas". Basically "The Hangover" with old guys.
Even if Victor Hill were to defeat Kem Kembrough, there's a pretty good chance that Walking Small's stay in office would be short-lived. Under state law, a sheriff must be P.O.S.T.-certified within 6 months of taking office. Victor Hill's P.O.S.T.-certification is currently suspended pending the outcome of the criminal charges against him. Even after the criminal case is finished, the P.O.S.T. board would still conduct an investigation before deciding whether or not to reinstate his P.O.S.T. certification and that could take 3-6 months after the conclusion of the criminal case. The date of his trial has not been set yet and there isn't another pre-trial hearing on the case until September. It's possible that his trial may not even begin until next year and considering that the P.O.S.T. board only meets on a quarterly basis, the timing of the trial could result in him being disqualified from holding his office and a special election would have to be held.
Victor Hill has cost the taxpayers here in Clayton County too much money already and the county can ill-afford his return to office.
He's an egomaniac as shown by his actions even before being elected Sheriff in 2004. In his current campaign ads and signs, he has the nerve to appear in the uniform he wore as Sheriff (despite not being a sworn member of said department) and instead of saying "elect" on his signs, they say "re-elect" and that's a misleading statement as that term can only be applied to the current Sheriff.
The fact that 11,706 people voted for Victor Hill is troubling. Do my fellow residents in Clayton County have short memories? Does the fact that he has been indicted on 37 counts related to matters from his previous tenure as Sheriff even register with these voters (They probably buy into his argument that the charges were politically motivated. )? Two years ago he ran for the State Senate and was beaten in the primary.
