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?
This city needs more Aaron Watsons.
I got a Spikes flyer on my door a few weeks ago. It was an object lesson in poor design no white space, full of drop shadows for no reason. It was also littered with typos and grammatical errors, and for some reason someone saw fit to end practically every sentence with two exclamation points.
I know Spikes didn't design the thing himself, but it doesn't reflect particularly well on his ability to hire competent people.
I'm probably going with Reed. Norwood seems to consist largely of good intentions, few ideas, and nearly zero capacity for actual success. Borders is the same but with a bit more creativity thrown in. Reed might be a pushy jerk, but he's got a track record of success and I'd rather have him represent me than the rest of this clueless lot. I'd rather my mayor be effective than nice.
Er, all this talk of surging crime, but the AJC reports that violent crime is down sharply. Is this just the effect of a few high-profile incidents on people's perceptions?
