Pop Traveler enumerates 10 awesome things about ATL

The Pop Traveler, a new feature in USA Today's Pop Candy blog, has posted an article from local blogger Rachel Mason, "Ten reasons why Atlanta is so awesome." Her assertion that "Atlanta residents love the alphabet, because it places us first in almost everything (unless Albuquerque and Anchorage are involved)" is a new one on me, but I can get behind most of 10 choices, which include the Starlight Drive-In, Dragon*Con, The Center for Puppetry Arts and King of Pops. It's a shame she doesn't shout out to the local music scene, though, and maybe "Netherworld" and "Zombies" could have shared a single horrific category. Any chance to mention Run For Your Lives, a zombie-infested 5K obstacle course race, seems worth taking.

Perhaps in 2012 we should call a moratorium on the word "awesome," which could use a vacation after so much over use in recent years.
