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.
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.
OK, isn't that the FULTON county school system problems with online classes? 'Nuff problems with APS already.
This event is actually in July.... you've got the dates wrong!
I guess if the internet existed when the interstate system was being built... little piece by little piece... it would have never been completed.
The totally sad thing is people really do buy their stuff. If they would ever take the opportunity to check out the info, they might understand that this is all 'entertainment radio' - not facts.
Alas, but that takes effort.
The really good thing is that all this ranting creates great material for comedians.
You need to look at the AJC roundtable recorded from last week. It does have good information, and some intelligent debate http://bcove.me/i01sm26b - and yes, the did mention telecommuting (like that would solve everything. Sure.) There was a fellow from the Brookings Institution that was really good - and was from DC - not a local politician trying to make political points.
The funny part is when the Fayette county fellow starts waving his Breeze card around saying he rides MARTA. I really hope he enjoys my subsidizing his rides. Too bad he isn't willing to pay full freight!
