Good luck staffing the stadium without some mode of mass transit from south Atlanta to the new stadium.
Same company that bid for Pullman Yard a few years back.
Atlanta Underground Film Festival 2013 is not at the Goat Farm. It is at Eyedrum. Check the www.auff.org link.
Mark From Atlanta,
In light of the entire content of my comment and the subsequent editor's note, I think it is clear that I was commenting on the author's/paper's citation of Georgia Code as it relates to the Mirville case. To focus only on the last sentence of my comment misses the point entirely. The poorly chosen source was only the tip of the sad iceberg that sank the article for me. But, the source itself is a hilarious read.
The author chose to use the Naturalist Action source to cite Georgia Code when that very source qualifies the Georgia code on their website as “not official texts." It’s sad that neither the author nor the editor caught this prior to publishing.
Even more troubling, the author made a mistake when she used the Georgia Code to make her argument instead of the City of Atlanta Code used by the officer when arresting Mirville. The police report makes it very clear that the officer was enforcing city code. It’s sad that the police officer’s intention was condemned by the author when the author was using the wrong set of facts. As the editor’s note says, the police officer was simply enforcing the law as it’s written. Neither the author nor the editor found this error in fact prior to publishing.
I find it sad that the integrity of the article and the paper that published it was compromised not only by the poorly chosen Naturalist Action source but more importantly by the lack of proper research and fact finding regarding the Mirville case. However, I’m encouraged by the paper’s honest admission of error and timely effort to publish the facts. CL has a talented editorial board, writing staff, and aesthetic eye which I am grateful for as a reader.
The Naturalist Advocacy source is hilarious because it contains such titillating titles such as “The Lawmaker's Guide to Skinny-Dipping Issues.” It’s hilarious to think that someone spent time writing a guidebook for legislators on Skinny-Dipping issues. What’s even funnier is that Skinny Dipping legislation probably couldn’t be passed by our current government. You should definitely read deeper into naturistaction.org. You might get a kick out of it too.
I'd like to point out a mistake in the report that might affect the article and discussion. The law referenced in the article as pertaining to the case is Georgia code 16-6-8. After reading the police report posted by user ThomasWheatley, it seems the officer arrested the woman based on "City Ordinance" and not "Georgia Code". The relevant City of Atlanta Ordinance is Section 4, Section 106-129 This seems like a glaring editorial/research mistake and should be corrected if proven accurate.
If the officer arrested the woman based on the City of Atlanta ordinance, then the police officer actually enforced the law as it is written. The officer then should not be held in such contempt, but rather the law itself.
which regards as indecent exposure: “An exposure of one’s genitals or one’s breast, if female.”
P.S. Naturist Action Committee as a source? Really? Kinda hilarious, but also kind of sad.
end of discussion
Atlanta has a lot of young developers with bright, smart visions for the future. I hope one of these people can finance the property. Hopefully, the state looks not only at the quantity of the bid, but more importantly the quality of the bidders.
