Tickets just got dropped to $50 a piece. People who already purchased at $100 should have received an email about it.
Almost 50 million American have no medical insurance. George's experience is, in all likelihood, not an aberration, a one-in-fifty-million shot. That's ridiculous. Chances are, it's much closer to the norm than anyone is comfortable thinking about, especially those closest to the problem.
But like ay good program says, the first step to solving a problem is admitting that it exists.
Two Urban Licks can't be said to have ample parking -- Serpas has parking spaces in the Studioplex lot. Rathbun's and Rathbun's Steak both fit, but I can't see Kevin closing either when he's about to open KR Steakbar.
The picture in the ad is a huge hint -- it's the tower right outside Serpas.
Yes, attitudes *are* shifting -- as exurban middle-class white people get out from under crippling mortgages and buy up some great in-town property. Really, keep your SUV-driving, homeowner association-having BS OTP, please.
I'd love to know who gets to be in charge of deciding what's "art" and what's "graffiti" and what qualifies them for the job...
Also -- one officer? One?
That's a nod to the snooty people who have been moving into the up-and-trendifying neighborhoods in EAV through to Reynoldstown and Cabbagetown.
I'm getting a little tired of people moving into vibrant communities and sucking the character out of them.
So here, here's your one cop so that APD can say they're doing something about it, and appease your stupid, erroneous fears that all taggers are gang members.
I'm interested to know *how* the APD and Atlanta is going to define what is artistically okay, and what is not.
They are no better qualified to determine the artistic merit of street art than the graffiti artists making it.
Oh, and are we going to start charging children who use pavement chalk? I mean, for a lot of people that's unwanted, and unartistic, so if we can't charge the children, can we at least charge the parents?
The reason that Superbowls are given to Atlanta isn't the Dome, it's the infrastructure required to support 90,000 out of town visitors for a one-weekend event.
The location of the Dome just isn't good. If the Falcons and Braves happen to be playing home games on the same day (and God forbid that day is over Dragon*Con weekend) 75/85 grinds to a halt for miles in both directions, impacting 400 and 20.
I don't care where they put the new stadium, but I think it's less important than extending MARTA out into Gwinnett and Cobb (sorry, snooty suburbanites, you're gonna have to get over your bad selves.)
Making the new stadium MARTA accessible is a no-brainer, and any plan that takes the stadium further away from mass transit should be abandoned.
