Re: “Fast food fight

@ Mark from Atlanta
""Are you sure you're not a UGA booster?"
When you run out of reasoned arguments you transfer to insults. Typical Mark diversion tactic.

"Take 1/2" and multiply it by the square footage of the average roof then tell me it would not reduce water usage."
1/2" of rain over a 1500SF roof will provide 900 gallons - not much for a month and a mere gesture if a garden must be watered. And don't forget some water in the rain barrel evaporates every day.

"Do not cast your pearls...".
When you run out of reasoned arguments you transfer to insults. Typical Mark diversion tactic. Answer the question.

"Both are very labor intensive. "
The amount of labor involved is not relevant. As the cost of water increases, owners with landscapes will be incentivized to xeriscape.

"Look at #6, Broch: "Reduce regulations regarding use of grey water for landscaping, gardening etc. Many municipalities currently ban grey water use."."
Reducing regulations is not deregulation. Deregulation is removing all regulations.
And banning grey water use is not a bad thing. Owners who install grey water systems in buildings often bypass them after occupancy because they are a maintenance and operational headache. Owners who take grey water for cooling tower makeup frequently regret it and switch to potable municipal water.

Re: “Cut and run

I agree with "c" and "STOPCRAPPYJOURNALISM". Ms. Keating clearly has an agenda. I thinks the apprehension of a crazy person armed with a knife in hand by Taser is a text book case of good police work. Earlier this year a crazy man was gunned down by police in Arizona the exact situation.

Re: “APS files lawsuit to gain full control of four vacant school deeds

As much as I read about our reformer of a new school superintendent and our visionary mayor, they seem to be two young politicians stuck in the same stupid rut as every old politician that came before them. Egos and lawsuits.

Re: “First Slice 5/4/15: Sheriff Victor Hill involved in accidental shooting — and not cooperating with police

You know, this happened to me just last week - I was looking at a house to buy and shot the showing agent in the stomach. When the police arrived, I told them that I didn't want to discuss what happened and then got in my car and just drove away from the scene. And they let me!

Happens all the time.

Re: “What happened in the death of Alexia Christian?

The 5/3/15 AJC featured an article where in the family said the death of Alexia Christian was unjustified. One has to give a pass to the family for their irrational thoughts during this sad time. That said I wonder three things about this shooting. 1.) Why did she miss? I own a Tarus .38 Special and a Bursa .380 and am an experienced marksmen. I find it unfathomable that she missed hitting both officers.
We're talking about a shot of aprox. three feet. It's possible the round was deflected by the plexiglass. 2.) Maybe this was a suicide by cop. Maybe she missed intentionally knowing that if you fire on the cops their training kicks in and that are going to put you down. 3.) I wonder if they didn't want to search her in public because they were male officers. Since they had her in cuffs they may have felt they could wait until a female police arrived so they wouldn't be accused of sexual assault. One thing is for sure, if you fire on the cops they are not going to stop firing back until your dead or their dead.

Surely if Victor Hill is involved there's a simple explanation to all that stuff.

Re: “Judge to APD: Train police on public's right to videotape officers

> Seems like there needs to be a middle ground established.

I'm sorry, but not only is that really stupid, but it also flies in the face of multiple court rulings, at multiple levels, that citizens have a *constitutionally protected* right to photograph or take video of police so long as the citizens aren't interfering with police operations. There is no middle ground - the police can either obey court precedent or not, and it's clear that APD (and many, many, many other police agencies nationwide) have no interest in doing as they've been ordered to do.

And you know why? Because there's never any negative consequence to police officers who disobey the courts on this matter. How about some contempt of court charges? Or maybe false imprisonment? I bet the possibility of being charged with a felony would change police (mis)behavior in a hurry.

Re: “Atlanta radio goes three times dope

I'm ecstatic about these old school hip-hop stations. I had actually stopped listening to the radio because of the garbage that currently dominates the airwaves. It's refreshing to know that I can now get in my car and listen to classics like Slick Rick's "Hey Young World", MC Lyte's "Paper Thin", or Pete Rock & CL Smooth's "They Reminisce Over You". #Nostalgia

Re: “Raising a gender fluid child in metro Atlanta

Males have XY chromosomes and a penis, Females have an XX chromosomes and a vagina. This is true for the vast majority of the population except for a vanishingly small percentage most of who are not mentally ill people clamoring for attention. Thats the scientific definition plain and simple. You can dress up all you want. Just don't go inventing an alternate definition based upon feelings and emotion that makes the whole concept meaningless and then tell the people using the scientific definition that they are wrong.

Re: “Atlanta radio goes three times dope

Great article.

I wish there was room on the dial for an Electronic based station, not just EDM but soulful house, Techno, Indie-Dance (Like LCD Soundsystem).

Would be amazing just to brake up the Rnb/Top 40 a bit.
