Re: “Mammoth Ga. 400/I-285 interchange overhaul to include PATH trail

$5-6 million for a 1,500 ft. path? That seems like a lot.

Re: “Clock ticking on $250 million infrastructure bond vote

@Beverly Fraud

So, what else can we do about that? How can you make him care?

Maybe I have the purpose of a vote misconstrued. It is a choice, "a formal indication of a choice between two or more candidates or courses of action" (Apple Dictionary).

I don't believe that there is an alternative, is there? It's either pass it, or don't. How would it be better if it didn't pass? I see the city officials saying, "well see, they don't want it passed, back to funneling cash elsewhere."

I apologize for coming off like a know-it-all. I don't know shit. Just a concerned bike rider, commuter, inhabitant of Atlanta.

Re: “Clock ticking on $250 million infrastructure bond vote

I mean, if you don't vote for this, how is that going to show that we care for updating infrastructure? It may not be perfect, but at least its something in the right direction.

If you don't like it, why don't you run for office then?

Re: “The Gold Dome bill to regulate Uber and Lyft has been introduced and it's a doozy

Looks like the limo/taxi lobby (does that even exist?) has their hands jerking more than a few dicks at once!

Fuck taxis. Fuck limos. Uber and Lyft are the new generation. You got beat and that sucks.

Re: “Cobb GOP chairman: Braves transportation fixes can't include 'moving people into Cobb by rail from Atlanta'

It's not about proximity. It's about excitement. People from OTP were willing to drive to downtown because it's COOL and SPECIAL to be in a large city, watching the ATLANTA Braves. I can guarantee you that once the stadium is put up in the "center of their fanbase," said fanbase will take it for granted and attendance will not skyrocket as they so assume.

People who want to go to games will go to games. Does the move decrease the economical cost of attending for a large number of fair weather fans? Possibly yes. But there are way more factors to consider. Who knows what the fuck will happen: unknown traffic issues, pig headed stadium managers, raised ticket prices, crappy infrastructure surrounding, construction issues (the livable stadium concept sounds like a nice sell now doesn't it? Who knows if it'll actually make it to completion) could still push people away and we'd see no better attendance than at Turner.

Re: “What does the government shutdown mean for Atlanta?

What about the airport and the TSA? That seems like a big deal.

Re: “Church owner Grant Henry paints over graffiti calling for 'riot 4 Trayvon'

Hurr durr I'm the owner of a bar and I want everyone to know that I'm a good guy that covers up graffiti and I'm a city-philanthropist and so you should come to my place 'cause I'm a good guy.

Shut up. Just paint it over silently if you really care.
