Re: “Atlanta United FC officially unveil name, logo

I don't like the prospect of having to admit supporting anything with the word "united" in it. The last thing I want to be linked to is that team out of Manchester.

Even less palatable is the fake turf they're foisting on the team. Who the Hell builds a new football stadium with fake turf? No one who wants to attract cup games or international events.

That's humorous, leery. Genuinely: you're funny.

Re: “Double-decker Downtown connector? Not out of the question, GDOT says

Cue the tired and predictable cries to expand MARTA.

The traffic problem is in no way going to be solved by merely extending MARTA to the outlying suburbs; the whole system needs massive internal expansion and improvements; and not of buses, but trains which don't fall prey to the same traffic issues plaguing passenger vehicles. The viability of any such expansion is a problem when considering the existing infrastructure (or lack thereof) and layout of the city. Could you tunnel it out, making a genuine subway system? Perhaps, but it would be excruciatingly expensive, not to mention disruptive.

The problem is that without an exponential expansion in not only service routes but the number of stops it's not going to put a dent in our traffic woes. Worse still, some wildly expensive and ultimately inadequate treatment will be done and remain idle or under-utilized leading to required subsidies in perpetuity.

If public transport is the answer, it's got to be rail and it's got to be convenient. I don't know a lot of folks who want to hoof it very far in high summer in Atlanta, especially when they have to dress in anything other than shorts and a t-shirt to work.

Re: “What's this? Another GOP push to restrict early voting?

A contiguous 24 hour block would better ensure people were able to vote; affording greater flexibility to people with daily obligations or, say, those working odd shifts or multiple jobs. Saturday voting would be fine, too. Regardless, the polling times need to be long.

Re: “What's this? Another GOP push to restrict early voting?

Why not make it one contiguous 24 hours block on the Tuesday and be done with it?

Re: “Police: Same gun used in the killing of two sleeping homeless men

Forensics could very well tell whether these came from a short-barreled, lightly rifled handgun like a Judge or Governor, but what made me think rifle was the whole taking time to reload bit. Seemed like an odd suggestion, given revolvers aren't a snap to reload.
