Well the most significant AJC story recently was just reporting the results of an independent audit of MARTA which found a ton of waste and things they could do to save money. Not seeing a ton of bias there.

Either all the cards should be on the table...or none of the cards should be.
I have to admit man Marta was a big reason I moved to Atlanta. Then when got here I it was only for the poor people, dirty people or people who can't afford a car. I would get this message from women Id meet. It was confusing, because I always thought Atlanta people wanted Atlanta to be great, but they go a bad mouth something I consider an amenity, a luxury & an asset. Point of views are funny like that. I always say no opinion should be silenced not matter how outlandish it may sound. I was never one to put down people who ONLY drive & contribute to pollution & decreased QOL slowly. Yet auto road building supports are very vocal about how they hate rail system expansion. I don't get it.
