atlanta is a perfect example of how poorly most american cities were designed. Then throw in the american mindset that we need big cars, big houses, big lawns, etc etc., you can see why most cities are in a big mess.

It boggles my mind that there are tens of millions of U.S. citizens who are too lazy to get up out of their chairs for a few hours every few years to go vote. Millions of their fellow citizens have fought and died to have that right.

Even as we speak people in other parts of the world are being beaten, jailed and killed in their fight to get the vote.

I bet if you made a gambling referendum you'd see similar results.
Low voter turn-out is what made the referendums turn out like they did. Those who were passionate about alcohol, no doubt many of them alcoholics, turned out to vote. Most other people were apathetic or somewhat unaware that there was even an election going on.

IMO, this simply demonstrates how deep South, old South politics on the state level are simply deficient and even antagonistic when it comes to nurturing and sustaining a progressive and dynamic city like Atlanta.
