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

Guess you don't hear it because 1) We're currently not in a drought, 2)Those conservation measures are already in place statewide, and have been so quite a while, 3)The Atlanta Metro area uses far less per capita water than it did when this conflagration began, 4) The Metro area uses less water per capita than its neighbor states, and 4)Georgia restricts outdoor watering, even now, but apparently this is not the case downstream.
So consider away......

Re: “State Sen. Carter: Cobb should 'let people digest the plan' before voting on Braves stadium funds

Not totally happy with Falcon's deal, but it was hammered out (somewhat more openly) with an already dedicated stream of funding. Not speculative financing.

Re: “City's current offer to Friendship Baptist Church for stadium property: $15.5 million

Although common cause has some good arguments, they are being extremely deceptive in the financial issues - they need to use PRESENT VALUE to compare the cash outlays and costs. That's the only way one can compare this to other projects. As it stands, they are comparing apples and grapes.

Re: “Behold! Yet another peek at the downtown streetcar

I guess if the internet existed when the interstate system was being built... little piece by little piece... it would have never been completed.
