I was just having fun. Don't be so sour. It's 2012. Enjoy!!!!

To add a couple more international new items (there isn't really an "international news drop box" thread active right now), it looks like the Indian Consulate has finally opened up:

Deal announces opening of India consulate in Georgia - CBS Atlanta 46

Also, Delta just announced weekly non-stop flights to Port-au-Prince, Haiti:

Delta to Launch Flight From Atlanta to Haiti
WABE: Delta to Add Non-stop Atlanta--Port au Prince, Haiti Service in April (2012-01-04) (http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/wabe/news.newsmain/article/1/0/1891251/Atlanta./Delta.to.Add.Non-stop.Atlanta--Port.au.Prince..Haiti.Service.in.April - broken link)

I believe we'll be the fourth city (third metro) in the country to have nonstops to Haiti (Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and New York). We also got a Haitian consulate recently.

Do you even travel OTP?
Not much only when leaving Atlanta, everything I need I can get to from MARTA. I said that from what I have seen of Cobb and Gwinnett counties.

It just seemed that the impression was that Von Maur was a big deal.

Just remember that people used to laugh at Atlanta too. Charlotte shows a similar ambition that Atlanta had and they are definitely moving in that direction.

Well, if you drive around a little in Cobb (say on South Cobb, or Atlanta Road, or Concord Road, or most any similar road), you will see small businesses all over the place. A lot are in converted houses, which I thought was interesting when I moved down here, but it makes sense.

It's not a "big deal"... just glad it isn't another Belk... and at least the space won't remain empty for long.
