Re: “Jackson, Lankford in rematch for Fulton County sheriff

He signed a plea deal to avoid a retrial on 22 other charges. According to U S attorney's office, it would be a waste of tax payers money to retry him because all of the key witnesses for the prosecution are DEAD. He is clearly not a trustworthy person.

The Paideia brat has drunk too much Black Lives Matter koolade. He will end up barricaded in a safe space at Emory or Oberlin.

@ Question Man
Not being able to fund a new Symphony Hall was a prime example of Woodruff Arts Center's hubris biting them. Another was the maintenance employee who embezzled over $1 million while WAC management was asleep at the switch.
They are not responsible stewards of patron's funds.

Over/under on the "luxury condo" bubble bursting just in time for them to leave a giant pit in Midtown?

Re: “The high price of development

I have no dog in this fight as I would not live in that part of the city. BUT.......
Everybody want's shinny and new, but know one wants to pay for it. Every body needs to live in a safe place and that is the cities job. but when the police are afraid to go into the hoods because of the violence that exist, what ya gonna do? oh and get all these baby mommies fixed and we wouldn't have all these single mothers living in these apartments.

Re: “Jackson, Lankford in rematch for Fulton County sheriff

The reason he can seek the office again is simple. The case was overturned and thrown out. They had to give him all of his back pay for suspending him. The deal was signed based on the initial conviction. After the case was overturned due to lack of evidence he was given back pay for the time of his suspension and reinstated into the law enforcement community with a Sheriff Emeritus Badge.

Re: “Open Door Community, Ponce's long-running haven for Atlanta's homeless, is closing next year

Aww, Elise Haverly, just so you know, I don't wish you ill. Not because I like you, but because "wishing" for "the universe" to do things is stupid and useless.

Re: “Jackson, Lankford in rematch for Fulton County sheriff

If he signed that deal, how is he legally allowed to seek the office again, much less seek it three more times?

Is it progress that Atlanta gets luxury condos/corporate suites on the site of what was going to be a new and better symphony hall?

Re: “Open Door Community, Ponce's long-running haven for Atlanta's homeless, is closing next year

adfafdas, wesleywhatwhat, every single one of us will, at sometime in our life, go through difficult or incredibly difficult times. When you suffer your own difficult times and things seem helpless or lonely or without resolve, please know that I will be somewhere wishing the worst for you. Not one who subscribes to a turn the other cheek philosophy, I will actively ask the universe to provide the same kind of care and concern that you have exhibited toward the Homeless in your oh so clever posts.

I really wish there were pickup trucks on these. There were pickup trucks during the opening ceremonies. There should be pickup trucks on these, because when I think pickup trucks, I think Atlanta.
