Despite Mayor Reed's promises of "middle class developments", I'll bet you that in ten years the plaque honoring Hank Aaron's 715th home run will be sandwiched between a pawn shop and a liquor store.
Will the Atlanta (and the national) LGBT community protest this? Cobb County is not gay-friendly, and the LGBT's sure kept Olympic events out of Cobb County in 1996. The same issues still exist. Have they just been forgotten about?
Congress (both houses) must obey TO THE LETTER all laws they pass that we have to obey.
I agree completely, although there is a serious double-standard being demonstrated here. Rap musicians use the N-word all the time, and also refer to me and my sistas as bitches and hos without anybody raising near the hell that's been raised over Paula Deen. And that seems a little racist itself. Like the underlying message is "We don't expect decent behavior out of BLACK people. We know you're going to be foul-mouthed and vulgar, but you get a pass because you're just Black folks." And frankly, that pisses me off a hell of a lot more than anything said by an old white woman.
I'm pulling for Cardinal Angelo Scola. Because his last name is pronounced "Si-Cola", if he becomes elevated we'll have Pope Si-Cola.
Point of order, if I may: This is not the State of Georgia. This is just a group of whiners collecting up signatures from a group of nutcakes who are pissed over the election. The same thing happened in California and Oregon over Bush's reelection in 2004. (The Oregon "secession plea" even stated a desire to become a province of Canada.) It's just a "pressure valve" release for the lunatic fringe on each side of the political spectrum.
