So... we don't know anything about what's going in next? b/c I noticed another demolition on Memorial and when I inquired, many said the City is knocking things down for re-sale but nothing slated to go up yet. http://imgur.com/a/H6EMU?
so many amazing nights both DJing and dancing there. from back in the day Team Rollers, to playing the likes of Le Tigre, Franz Ferdinand, etc . . . good farkin times.
"...surely making room for another living-shopping-condo-monstrosity experience, or something else that's equally as atrocious..."
One of my favorite places to play in the mid 90's. Probably because we could sneak out on the back porch between sets.. :) Probably the only place I played in full scuba gear, but I might be mistaken there. We were Baked...and that was also the name of our band.
I hope whoever replaces him has as good a mustache as his.
i'd love to see a definitive list of the bands that played Dottie's and the old Lenny's.
by the way, the 20th is a friday.
Do you know if Rep. Morris's monument will use the following Ten Commandments for Georgia Politicians?
1. Thou shalt not have any other gods before me unless they provide campaign contributions.
2. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord in vain except to score a political point.
3. Thou shalt not kill except in the case of the death penalty
4. Thou shalt not commit adultery unless thy publicly apologize and beg forgiveness.
5. Thou shalt not steal unless it is taxpayer money.
6. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor unless thy neighbor is thy election opponent.
7. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, nor covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s, but it’s okay to covet everything else.
8. Thou shalt not offer health care to the needy.
9. Thou shalt not offer quality education to children.
10. Thou shalt not address the needs of the less fortunate.
It sounds like Deal is really uncomfortable about this since he's obviously trying to absolve himself of any responsibility for same-sex marriage benefits. Good, I like seeing that guy squirm.
They can receive emergency care for pneumonia, perhaps. But (a) They lost the opportunity to catch it earlier and may have spread illness in the meantime or missed work… if you're talking about issues like screening for cancer, delay can mean a death sentence (b) If they're working class, that huge bill from the ER/admission ($5000/$7000 per day, EASY) they can't pay will follow them, threaten foreclosure, ruin their credit (c) There are many illness - say, a disabling hernia that keeps you from working - that can ruin someone's life & livelihood but don't qualify for free emergency care b/c they're not immediately life threatening. So *maybe* you can get a CT scan in the ER but you can't find a surgeon/hospital who fix the hernia that forced you to stop work in construction. Or *maybe* you can get a psych assessment but you can't get regular access to your meds.
This idea that the emergency room solves all is just not true. Just because the hospital has to (try to) save your life if it's in immediate danger doesn't mean people can always get care they need or that they get care for life-threatening conditions in time. We need the ACA in this country, we need Medicaid expansion in Georgia, and right now we can't live without Grady.

i'm sorry, i just can't a grown man seriously with a nickname like "bubba".
I wonder if they also payed Bubba McDonald for a lap dance and a 'happy ending.'
Quick! Somebody get the Satanic Temple on the line:
I think Broch's point is pretty sound. It's not only acceptable, but BETTER when people aren't insured.
Good discussion, as always.

"And sit and wait for hours upon hours? Only after they are very, very sick."
One can wait at a doctor's office for hours and hours as well (as I learned long ago). And the uninsured don't have until they are very, very sick to go to the emergency room.
When doctor's offices are closed, the insured must go to the emergency room also, and sit and wait for hours upon hours.
"When someone who is uninsured has the symptoms of a disease they go to the emergency room and receive treatment."
And sit and wait for hours upon hours? Only after they are very, very sick. Before that point how many folks have been exposed to it, including their family, friends, passersby and possibly you?
The world is getting to be a much smaller place, my friend. Our fates are much more intertwined that you can possibly imagine.
i really wouldn't call the ten commandments "two steps back" compared to thomas watson. it doesn't have any place on a government monument, but it isn't as bad as a statue of a racist psychopath.
just get a couple of representatives to vote some catholic or mormon stuff on there and this proposal will drop like a hot potato.

"When someone who is insured has the symptoms of a disease they will go to the doctor and receive treatment."
When someone who is uninsured has the symptoms of a disease they go to the emergency room and receive treatment.
What many folks don't realize is the role that universal health coverage plays in reducing the severity of epidemics. When someone who is insured has the symptoms of a disease they will go to the doctor and receive treatment. If they don't they often put off treatment until the disease gets worse and spreads to other folks. Expanding Medicaid and private insurance coverage is not only compassionate it is also prudent.
What? An honest man in the House? If this trend caught on how would we Cassandras / Menckens fill our days?
