It's Mexico... you gonna come back home in a body bag.... Atlanta has better air quality and colleges than Mexico.... Emory...Ga tech.... don't forget Savannah and Charleston are down the road....

It is nice.

I've been all over the Yucatan Peninsula and it's offshore islands, but not to Mexico City. I have a couple of friends and clients there, and would love to go one day.

I do have to say that the President & VP of a company I used to work for were robbed at gunpoint inside a taxi in gridlocked traffic there in Zona Rosa. But I would still love to go. Merida is actually above it on my list, though.

Well thats not unusual at all Miami does have a major port.However look at incomes of individual households a wide margin.

Household incomes and educational attainment are also skewed in our favor, but your hatred blinds you to the facts. You can't be reasoned with, and again have an obvious extreme bias against Atlanta.

I was under the impression that both metros are just over five million. After checking ATL is 5.5 million and MIA is 5.9 so there is a bit more production per capita in Atlanta but it's not a wide disparity as you make it out to be.

Continue minimalizing Atlanta all you want. It's making you look foolish at this point, and is becoming quite entertaining.
