I'm not being unfair to Atlanta at all. I am just telling it how it is. I am stating what Atlanta has got to offer. Now I am not going to sit here and say Atlanta is a great city when I know that I would be lying. Don't blame it on me if Atlanta does not have good qualities.

I will say Atanta offers a better city for living conditions..... meaning jobs, QOL and COL.
How can that be when :
Miami has a benign Arts scene.
Orchestra,Opera,are both rank way below what a city the size of Miami should be.
Museums are second rate overall.
Less Medan HouseHoLD INCOMES
Lower GDP
Better Public transit
Those are just a few FACTS.If you need more let me know.

Ohhh, the Bama Bangs. That's what you meant. That style is spreading ALL OVER the South. I 1st saw that style on that reality High School Football show on MTV about that highschool football team in Alabama. EVERY white guy on that team had the Bama Bangs. Bama Bangs become REALLY, REALLY, popular in Welthy Southern White College Fraternities, especially in, none other then Alabama(schools like Auburn, Bama, etc). But they've become popular from Alabama all the way up the piedmont to over here in North Carolina. They all have the same haircut in those Frats.

You simply did nothing but repeat to me what I already said.

This is a fact..... Miami is MORE important than Atanta.

My opinion..... Atlanta offers a better quality of life to for ppl to live in.

I think when he says "important" he means its more well known on an international level which it is due to its tourist industry. Lots of international travelers there and second home citizens in the Miami area.

Are you capable of understanding when a city is more important than another and when a city has offers a better quality of life?

Quality of life does not equal importance.........

I wouldn't say Miami is more important than ATL. ATL is a HUGE logistics hub, and HUGE air traveling hub. It's geographic position lends it a hand in it's importance. And ATL holds more weight in the South than Miami does.

Well that was my question.Importance to whom?And on what level?You?Well thats subjective and I cannot argue wth that.But if you are telling me because people in the South wear "boat shoes" and have "Bamma hair cuts" then Id say you are not worthy of adult conversation.
