Do the horse and the popcorn

Last Thursday, Mayor Shirley Franklin hosted a public Q&A to discuss putting a Civil Rights museum near the Aquarium on land Coke owns. Why not put the museum in the neighborhood (Sweet Auburn) that birthed the Civil Rights Movement? Because Coke is donating the land. Besides, who'd wanna visit a museum in a predominantly black neighborhood?

MAYOR FRANKLIN TOUTING COCA-COLA CIVIL RIGHTS MUSEUM: "The day when tourists will be able to buy 'I Have A Dream' sleepwear in a museum gift shop is fast approaching."

Friday night, Atlantans squeezed into their hot pants and good-footed it to Eyedrum for a James Brown memorial dance party. And Sunday evening, we watched the World Famous Lipizzaner Stallions dance, trot and poop their way around Gwinnett Arena with people dressed vaguely like Napoleon on their backs.
