Cobb County is not Atlanta. They should really drop the "A" from their logo. From here on out they're the Marietta Braves.
Every two years, I am proud to be able to go into the voting booth and reelect John Lewis as my congressperson.
Hey Indiscretion - take another look at the area south of 5 points. Eyedrum is now working out of C4's Fuse Arts Center space on MLK just south of Underground.
The biggest loss in the move from Ralph McGill to the Westside was the theater. In it's McGill heyday, the Nexus theater was one of the premiere presenters of cutting edge dance and performance art in the nation and an active member of the National Performance Network. When they opted to forego the performance component in the move to the Westside, many in the performance & dance community gave up on the place, and many still mourn the loss to this day.
Wow. So many smokers clinging to their nasty habit by whatever rationalization they can find. Ban smoking in all public area, including bars. Hell yes. It's working in cites all over the country. Is Atlanta really THAT addicited to cigarettes?
"State Rep. Mike Jacobs, R-Brookhaven, who chairs the Gold Dome committee that oversees MARTA..."
There's the whole problem with MARTA - the Gold Dome Gang overseeing it. The GA Legislature needs to back off of their micromanaging, start allocating some state funds (like every other big-city transit system) and acknowledge that ATLANTA is the leading economic engine for the entire state and give us the respect we're due. But I'm not holding my breath... Racist rednecks rule the roost under the Gold Dome.
