Best recap by a local blogger of a 1990s educational series: Pecanne Log
Count yourself blessed if you're able to get your hands on a copy of "The Making of Modern Atlanta," a 1990s public TV mini-series that investigated, in amusing fashion, how the metropolis we know and love came to be a transit-deprived, road-ravaged, ball of ignorance, hubris, and procrastination. Hosted by Tim Crimmins of Georgia State University and Dana White of Emory University, the program is like "Glee" for urban policy wonks - lots of talk about the Lochner Report and sewer infrastructure. And who better to introduce us to this gem than Pecanne Log. Over the course of several blog posts, the local ladyblogger (who's now expanded her online empire to Twitter and Tumblr) took us on a spellbinding, screenshot-laden recap of the delightfully informative series, episode by episode, and shows a sweet reverence for Crimmins and White, who call themselves "the History Twins" (even though White, who recently retired from Emory, is bald, while Crimmins sports a shock of blonde hair).
