Re: “The Ultimate Atlanta Burger Smackdown

Any burger list in Atlanta without The Hank from Illegal Foods is simply incomplete.

Re: “Spring Street viaduct to close in September, prepare for chaos

Can we please leave two way traffic along Centennial Olympic Park Drive permanently?!? There is zero reason for COP to be one-way through downtown now that the interstate exit has been reconfigured to Williams Street. It is currently a two way street on both ends (Techwood Drive / Walker Street).

Re: “Ticket that bicyclist!

Does anyone want to call out Jim on his abhorrent hypocrisy? This guy rolls around town with his Faster Mustache kit on ( http://fastermustache.org/ ) and then has the balls to call out any and every cyclist who dares to disobey a traffic violation. While granted FM has evolved greatly over the years, these guys completely started out of Critical Mass, late night alley cats, and the infamous FM24 races. All of which blatantly and proudly disregarded every traffic violation and city code of regulations you could find. While I love the majority of the FM guys, quit being a giant douche Jim. Instead of calling out cyclists for yielding at red lights and stop signs, how about we work to get the laws changed? Wouldn't it be nice if ATL actually pushed the progressive side of the agenda and implemented Idaho Stop Laws ( http://legislature.idaho.gov/idstat/Title4… ) instead of burying our heads in the sand and blaming cyclists for their extreme disregard of the laws?

Re: “MARTA app, GPS system help you stalk your favorite bus routes

Seriously! Chicago and other leading cities have had these programs available since 2008. Get with the program Atlanta / MARTA. If we are continually running four to five years behind schedule on simple software and information upgrades, it is no surprise that we are 20 to 30 years behind in actual infrastructure solutions!

Re: “ClusterFest™ 2011

Oh...and the Braves are in town all weekend as well! Just in case none of the above floats your boat.

Re: “Street renaming ploy revs up new showdown

I hereby decree the linear infrastructure formerly known as Harris Street, the "John Portman Automotive Sewer."

Re: “Street renaming ploy revs up new showdown

From Portman's theoretical writings it would actually be quite humorous for a street to be named after him. His early theories on urbanism often relate the street to a sewer for automobiles. Humans should be elevated above the street into the glorified air of the gerbil tube. Thus the vacancy and depression of the Downtown Atlanta streets surrounding Portman's buildings. It is possible to traverse over 14 blocks of Downtown Atlanta without ever setting foot on a sidewalk. So sure, lets rename a sewer after the old fart.
