And you like using the word "agenda". And "divisive". Methinks you project a bit too much.

You love listening to Limbaugh-style radio, obviously.

A typical strategy of talk-radio is the repetitious usage of the loaded language fallacy. And you love using loaded lanaguage to a fault.

You just want people who think different than you to shut up. That is not going to happen.

So keep using those loaded language words until you are blue in the face. You will not stop the change that must happen.

And your old world views will eventually die out in a few generations. I will not live to see that day, but all blessings go to my grandchildren and great grandchildren who will.

So take that check to the bank and cash it.

It's good.
LOL! You are beyond clueless. I can't stand Limbaugh, and think he should be taken off the air. I'm a Rachel Maddow/msnbc guy, but thanks for playing.

I don't know what quoting some news network and some journalist is suppose to do for this "debate".

I honestly do not care for establishment corporate media in general. That goes double for 24hr news networks, regardless of their allege political bias.

But whatever, I suppose. Later.

That's an excellent point that many people falsely think that it is mass transit that brings apartments to outlying areas. But many localities did not need the presence of mass transit for the construction of apartments to take place.

Many outlying areas (including Cobb, North Fulton, Gwinnett, Clayton, Henry, Douglas, Coweta and Rockdale counties) permitted the construction of apartment complexes either well before transit was a factor or in places where transit never has been and still is not really a factor.

In most places in Metro Atlanta (particularly outside the MARTA service area and even in places within it), it has been ROADS that have and continue to "bring in apartments".

To follow on this, the apartments that do exist in the suburbs tend to be people that have no choice. A few students, but mostly "the poor." Apartments in the suburbs offer no advantages to a house, rental or owned. When apartments are near transit, they offer the advantage of convenience, which many people will trade off the advantages of a house for.

Well obviously, you're comparing areas that are not similar in size.

Perhaps you are right, but there are some very nice apartments out my way in the burbs. And, we know folks living out in the burbland apartments who, in fact, do have a choice. I'm curious about the basis for your statement.

Well, that is true and my apologies for being vague. What I meant was that there are lots of very dense apartmentment communities in the suburbs. They go on for miles.

Rides MARTA, checks out the neighborhood. Comes back with a car.

Nah. Marta (at least the train) doesn't go anywhere conveniently local to those neighborhoods.

I'd be surprised if that happens at any significant level, bu2. It's conceivable that a would be burglar might scope out a neighborhood right next to a MARTA station. But why walk a mile (or two or three) away to case the houses when you can easily and safely do a drive by?

I've often heard the cops says that virtually all burglars use cars.
