Re: “Shared space

I love the idea of communal dining in restaurants. After visiting Germany, I realized that Americans are far too invested in the idea of personal space. What happened to making new friends and enjoying the company of nice people over good food? I think there's something to be said about a country full of people who can't stand being close to people we don't know (admittedly, I used to be one of them). We shouldn't look at talking to strangers as such a bad thing. There is something to be learned from every new person you talk to, and I think we should take advantage of those opportunities.

Re: “Supporters of historic and endangered Crum & Forster building receive bad news

@WillIam: That's a really interesting point. Why is it that Georgia Tech is allowed to tear down a historic structure, yet Angel is forced to stick to the "strict" regulations and rebuild his house the way the city wants him to? It seems to me like the city simply favors those who have tons of money to spend. CL should really look into writing an article pointing that out. Why must some people adhere to the city's "rules" but not others?

Re: “Georgia as abortion battleground

I hope the state realizes that this bill is simply going to lead to an increased rate of illegal abortions.

Re: “Developers considering apartments next to Atlanta Waterworks reservoir on the Westside?

The shopping centers like the one on Howell Mill Road and in Atlantic Station sell very little organic and local produce and meats. With places like Yeah! Burger, Yoforia, and West Egg (all mostly organic and local ingredients) on this side of town, I hope that a grocer with local options is on the horizon. And while these large shopping centers are certainly in biking distance, the roads on this side of town are in such poor condition that it makes it very difficult, and unsafe, to bike (trust me, I've biked to both of these places on many occasions). Not to mention the fact that many stretches of road are completely void of sidewalks. If the city is in fact planning on further developing this area, I hope they make it a little more walk-able and friendly to bike-commuters. I think this will also help attract people to live in this area.

Re: “The King kids continue to tarnish their father's legacy

Although I agree that they have undoubtedly had a troubled life after losing their father, I don't see that as an excuse to tarnish his name. Their behavior is extremely disappointing. It's very hard for me to believe that a man like MLK would raise his children in such a way that they find it acceptable to behave this way. There are plenty of people out there who have had a very difficult past and still manage to handle themselves with some class. I don't care how much they've been through...there's really just no excuse.
