Re: “Tim Keane

Obviously not his fault but Atlanta may be the worst designed major city in the world.

Re: “Mayor Kasim Reed

how many more decades will it take for the beltline to be completed? This should have been priority #1 due to its impact on the entire city and should have totally been completed within 2-3 years MAXIMUM. Instead, we're looking at least at another decade before completion. This will be Reeds legacy of FAILURE.

Re: “Mayor Kasim Reed

He wants Atlanta to avoid becoming un-affordable like London, New York and San Francisco? The reason those places are 'un-affordable' is because they're great cities where lots of people want to live and work. They have things like public transportation, they have a thriving cultural scene, they are aesthetically pleasing and pedestrian friendly. Atlanta is choking to death on traffic with no meaningful public transport. It is a horrible place for pedestrians. And how about that rat's nest of power, phone and cable lines above our heads? Maybe spend some of the money to bury those! Comparing Atlanta to those other cities in any context is just silly.

Re: “Alexander Acosta

"We have heard the dispatch...they said not to approach Treyvon. He ignored the order and approached anyway."

Man, your ignorance is astounding. Zimmerman said okay and stopped. He, at that point, did not know Martin's location. Listen to the tape.
It is impossible to 'engage' someone whose location is unknown to you
Martin had reached his father's girlfriend's house and could have gone inside and that would have been the END,
but instead according to Jeantel's testimony(listen to it) he went back, stalked, confronted and sucker punched Zimmerman,
got on top of Zimmerman, smashing Zimmerman's head into the concrete(look at the injuries to Zimmerman's head) and pummeling him 'MMA style' (according to eye-witness testimony- listen to it).
Zimmerman defended himself from the attack and shot Martin. Martin made a very bad decision and paid the ultimate price for his stupidity.

Defending someone based solely on his race and a willful ignoring of the facts is racist behavior and despicable.

@Northern Sentinel

We have heard the dispatch...they said not to approach Treyvon. He ignored the order and approached anyway. Also, Zimmerman has been in a handful of violent/domestic incidents since then which leads one to believe he was the issue not Treyvon

Re: “Pero Antić: The basketball player

Absolutely great how the NBA has been globalizing. There has been a flood of truly great players since Toni Kukoc has played for the Bulls and I can't wait for more.

Re: “Marian Liou

It'd be nice if this was a genuine attempt at being a steward of the community, but currently her attempts seem more self serving than anything else. She hasn't demonstrated a team success and acknowledged who has been working with her to achieve it (in fact, we haven't really seen any successes here). I love Buford Highway and the community so I hope someone really works behind the scenes about these concerns around gentrification. Creative Loafing should celebrate hard won success and true leadership, not just Instragrams and social media that has yet to produce any results.

The world itself would be a better place without despicable people who resemble yourself. We aren't born to practice racial hatred or's something that's taught and unfortunately followed.

Chuck Reece seems to think there's money to be made from new media journalism. Having often maxed-out numerous credit cards on such follies myself, all I can say is... why bless his heart.

Re: “Maximus Thor and Benny Wonka

Loved the article, but Grits is a vampire, not a zombie!
Otherwise, this is a great look at the dynamic between these two. They're some of the best of the best and I can't wait to see what 2016 holds for them.

Re: “Maximus Thor and Benny Wonka

It's about time Ben, Max, James and the whole Family crew got this vote of confidence. Kudos to CL for this piece! They deserve it! Maximus Thor is by far the most unique, groundbreaking, and impactful content on YouTube today. Keep up the good work Fam!

Re: “Maximus Thor and Benny Wonka

These people are for real coming out with some of the most original content and doing it in a positive, supportive and very entertaining way. I first started following them in 2012 and over that time they've brought me a lot of laughter. They've also brought me more than a few happy tears as well. Benny-if you read this please know how much I appreciate the message you're sending. You and the fam are good people. You rock-amps to eleven and six strings sparking.
