Re: “Do Atlanta‚Äôs African-American landmarks really matter?

Very nice piece. Thank you for writing it, Mr. Robinson. I would add, though, that this issue isn't confined to African-American landmarks. Atlanta, it's been said, is a city that runs away from its history, rather than embracing it. On the one hand, that can be good. Because it enables the city to constantly reinvent itself and it is why so many newcomers can arrive here and instantly feel like they fit in. On the other hand, it would be nice to have some sense of remembrance of where this city has been and what it's done. A great place to start would be to slow down - not stop - but slow down, some of the rush to tear down the older buildings in the city. Let's take some of the great landmarks and preserve them to help tell the Atlanta story.

Re: “How WABE responded when GPB came to town

This story refers to an "influential independent institution" being forced "off the air," but it doesn't say what that was. Why the vaguery?

Re: “First Look: STK

Hmmm, methinks those who might refer to such a place as "urbane" might really mean that it's snooty. For which, I for one, am grateful that Atlanta has relatively few such establishments. Those who think that "big city professionals" means folks who like to look down their noses at others are ones who frequently say they've "given up on Atlanta." We like to point them toward Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and remind them that one-way tickets are available for booking online 24/7.

Re: “AJC now marketing itself as anti-Atlanta

The fact that the AJC has become increasingly anti-Atlanta is hard to dispute. However, the story that bashes the streetcar project is not the best example to illustrate this. There are plenty of others.
Having lived in several major metropolitan areas in the U.S., I can say I've never seen a daily newspaper with nearly as much disdain for its population center as the AJC has for Atlanta.
