Just like you comparing Jackson to Bham makes Jackson look bad.

I just want to know exactly how is Birmingham a "smaller, slower ATL." I know it's your opinion, but it must be based on some kind of fact.

I'm too done.
I'm going to leave this one to the Bham Oficionado, because I think I'm out of my league here.

Westbank you also asked what can a regular citizen in Birmingham couldnt do in Jackson, well for starters

Dine at a couple of world renowned chef Frank Stitt's resturants such as the five star Highland bar&grill. Relax at the Ross Bridge resort and spa, shop at Saks Fifth Ave. Does Jackson even have an Embassy Suites, or a Macy's????.

That's probably not what most people would think of when you said that; that's why I wanted clarification. But I don't think any of that has anything to do with Atlanta in particular; any moderately growing city in the Southern Piedmont is going to have all that.

Westbank, fact is that Birmingham is far ahead of Jackson just as Atlanta is far ahead of Birmingham. Face it, live with it and move on.
