Yes.

Lets stop being idiots about these subjects. Stop spending money on something you absolutely, positively will not stop and start making money off of it. Come on, its really not rocket science.

would it create more jobs in the long run? The other day in the office this susbject came up which lead to the arguement of ebony porn being filmed in Atlanta. I was under the impression filming and distrubution of porn was illegal here in georgia. There are no major porn companies here like in Miami & LA. Georgia could bring in boat loads of cash if it were to be taxed. My understanding is that filming porn for distrubution here is not allowed.

I guess the thinking is that some things are more important than tax revenue.

yeah— designated to areas where the residents are poor and don't have any voice in local government.
Not always. Cheshire Bridge Road has always had a reputation for the seedier side of sex. Yet, it is bordered by Buckhead, Midtown, Morningside, Lenox Park, Woodland Hills, etc. These are hardly poor areas where the residents don't have a voice in local government.

But, Tony, many people do have a problem with it. I would venture to say more do than do not.

Possibly, but money is so important to all the fragmented governments in the Atlanta metro and their is not that much unity.
