Re: “To sprawl or not to sprawl?

You can not compare Atlanta to states in the Northeast Corridor. Washington, Baltomore, Phila., NYC, Boston - Hugh numbers of people compressid into a relatively small "corridor" in a relatively short distance. THAT is why it works. Also the train-subway system is latge and comprehensive. Much of kit was build years ago when construction cost were low and property cheap and along existing rail lines. Nothing here like that.

Re: “To sprawl or not to sprawl?

I does not take an engineer to figure this out - When you combine 10 lanes of traffic into 5 lanes of traffic (or 12 into 6), you ARE goling to gridlock - period. I suppose that can be solved somehow, but how much and how long. Infrastracture changes take years & years these days with environmental impact studies, law suites and all. Martta works for those goinhg down town & to the airport. The bus system is a joke. I live less than 30 minutes from work (on a bad day). Marta can get me there in just under 2 hours. This is throwing monies in a black hole.

Re: “Justice Neal Boortz?

If you were in college in the 60s you had a deferment - period. You DID NOT have to be in ROTC.
Check your facts Sugg. I suspect everything else you said is just as inaccurate.
