Uh. No. The problem is Atlanta's failure to match population growth with infrastructure growth. I lived in Dallas for 12 years with this job. SO many new highways and freeways are being built there. Oh and don't' suggest Marta because I have to haul equipment each week and so public transportation is not an option. So, thanks for the career advice but I'm good.

Well, since he underwrote most its' cost, one might say that. But he had no say in who it would be named after. The popular choice for the stadium's name (per an AJC poll at the time) was Hank Aaron Field.

Ok...well...I guess the next step is to seek counseling if you really can't deal with the traffic.

I agree about that. I would imagine though that the place would have to install only wooden chairs to keep the bums away.

Dude, its the main public library...the bums are suppose to be there. After the remodel I need the bums to be reinstalled or I'm not supporting the library.

From what I gather from brief visits:
Some Palm trees or a little more tropical landscape among all the trees or more a variety of them.
More Parks
Man made beach like the have in Phoenix.
I heard that one can visit the Sea Islands? for beaches?
oh yeah more sidewalks. Many elderly people complain about this
Better transportation.
