But if you listen to what you are exacting saying it does not make logical sense. I live in Macon and I have not heard anything about any plans plans or proposals to moved the halls to Atlanta... Also the reason the Halls are low in money is not because of NO visitor traffic, the State cut funds for the halls and to make up for the lost the city of Macon has passed a hotel/motel tax to pay for the funds cut by the state.... this goes back to what i mention to you early research before you post.....

I see you don't like to read much, i just explained to you what makes a city Major, and surely its not population. If that was the case,then Atlanta wouldn't be Major, because there are lots of US cities which are way smaller than Atlanta but has just a much or larger pop,but are not considered major. But who cares, besides.....Your are exactly right, "in your opinion" what makes a city major is the people living in the city and the jobs in the city.. But thats not what the world uses just you ONLY ......

Bravo Jam 5. Actually taking the initiative and visiting Macon instead of battling it online. We should all do what Jam is doing and take the time to visit our neighboring Georgia cities so we can learn more about our state's history, see how development has come along and to just explore all of what our state has to offer. Not battle over who got this development first or which city has the tallest building, etc.

Now, if we can only improve on those run on sentences... and saying "y'all" correctly. LOL (I kid, I kid)
