Re: “First Slice 3/4/15: It's Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, not Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport

For simplicity, would not it have been easier to have Atlanta Airport with the Hartsfield Terminal (Domestic) and Jackson Terminal (International). That way all would have been honored, and the name would not have been so complex.

Re: “Reservoir park plans could take shape in 2015

Two problems I can see: 1) drowning victim recovery in a 400' deep lake is most difficult, and 2) since it would be used for drinking water, the level might change quite rapidly according to demand, increasing the likelihood of the first problem. Maybe it's best just to nicely fence off the water.

Re: “Parks, solar panels, brewpub, thousands of parking spots to surround new Braves stadium development

Atlanta could survive without Cobb, the inverse is not likely true. Next time someone from out of state asks you where you live, do you respond Smyrna, or Atlanta?

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: “Jason Carter: 'There's an element of cronyism' with the governor's state board appointments

Everybody does it, so it's OK...
Maybe it's about time for EVERYBODY to stop doing this.

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.
