Southsiders can just bike to the park!
Thumbs up. It's true that the stadia would see limited use, but those criticizing it for this reason should note that there are other things in the drawing. Giving GSU students a reason to hang around the area is a far cry better than the empty parking lots that characterize it 284 days out of the year right now.
Burroughston: there's a lot of space between "work with the community to provide something that fits the beltline plan and won't destroy the neighborhood" and "handcuffs on the developers."
Hmm... Maybe we should also have drug tests for everyone who comes into contact with public property or services. Drug test every time you get on a public road. Drug test when you enter a public school campus. Drug test when you flush your toilet (those sewers, you know). Think of the jobs we could create with wall to wall drug testing.
I love the way the commenters a) defend CEOs' rights to make every penny they can while b) simultaneously defending the idea that workers should race to see who will work for the tiniest paycheck.
Sorry you're so sick and tired of people you don't agree with, drewdistilled. That's a first-world problem if ever there was one.
Anyhoo, I think you missed the point. Capitalism doesn't equate to buying yourself a government who then facilitates your thumb on the scales.
I don't much give a rip about football, basketball, or hockey, but as far as baseball is concerned, well, gee, who wouldn't want to go watch the Braves in a (bad) stadium full of fat suburban hicks wave foam hatchets and make Injun noises?
