I just didn't take this opinion piece to be informative about any neighborhoods, just her thoughts.
In that respect I found it entertaining.
I get the feeling some people missed this sentence.
"If I had moved to Capitol View when I was 19 and spent years layering the surrounding landscape with memories so thick that it looked and smelled like me, I would've stayed."
I'm surprised we as a culture love a sport that causes such harm. When it first became apparent how destructive the sport was, our society decided we liked the destructive action so much that we decided to pad the players to prevent unacceptable deaths. We could have easily changed the rules instead.
Since the NFL is behind these bills, I assume they think this is the only way to keep kids playing their barbaric sport. Enough kids get brain damage and parents might think twice about sending them out there. And then we might become a soccer nation. Oh the horror.
That concussion bill is just more nanny state. Those republicans just can't stop telling us how to live our lives. Concussions are just nature's way of weeding out the weak.
I always thought minimum parking requirements were based on the what's good for gm principle. Basically write using a car and lots of gas into city planning laws. I have no facts to back up that feeling. Does anybody else know?
Maybe I should get my tinfoil hat out.
Thought the same thing but can forgive this minor slip since every corner of that intersection is in a different neighborhood and the facility will serve all those neighborhoods.
Ah, David. Bringing back memories of 1982 at the Fox. Loved the 'riot' after and the AJC (or were the Journal and Constitution still nominally separate then?) headline the next day - 'Clash after Clash'
