We're looking better and better as the years go by, huh? What a train wreck that was tonight! Thoughts? Feedback?

It looked more appropriate for the opening ceremony of 1896.

Don't bother. Newsboy is right; it was ghastly.

Atlanta's Opening Ceremonies was our most impressive component of the Games. We did an awesome job. Not only was it spectacular, but it is one of the few times where I have seen Atlanta wholeheartedly embrace its Southern identity and show itself as the de-facto Capital of the American South. It was so well-done/authentic.

No it wasn't. I've seen better, but it wasn't a disaster.
