This is weird.

The list-generating business consultants at Mercer say Atlanta has the best city infrastructure the United States.

Mercer says the ranking is based on "electricity supply, water availability, telephone and mail services, public transport provision, traffic congestion and the range of international flights from local airports."

Um, Mercer, what the f@$k is wrong with you?

Atlanta's long-terms water use planner is Jesus.

Atlanta's mass transit funding is controlled by Satan.

Metro commuters endure the worst traffic in the nation and the city's biggest transportation project of the past decade consists of forcing Ryan Gravel to pose for photos by a disused rail line every six months.

I suspect the massive number of flights in-and-out of Hartsfield-Jackson is throwing off Mercer's magic formula. If that's the case, the formula needs tweaking.

Mercer, people pay you a lot of money to know stuff. Earn your money. Know stuff. Read a newspaper. Visit some local blogs, such as this one. AtlantaWaterShortage.com is pretty good, too.
