Like most on here, he wanted to argue opinions ... no discussion allowed. After that, well, I was just messing with him. (He claimed I had a beef with Savannah then asked me to never come back. That was friggin' funny right there!)
Because Savannah has the historic tourist draw working for it, its renewal efforts are/were directed differently than say Macon would/should/could go with its downtown renewal plans. Or Greenville went, or Chatanooga.
That was my point, and he never got it. I hope you do.
I honestly do.But Macon does have good bones.It seems like nowadays you do have committed people that have put aside there differences to Macon viable.I just think its slow because so many jobs have left and not returned on a large scale.I took a few friends there for a daytrip from France.I live in Atlanta.My parents live in Warner Robins.Warner Robins is vibrant but its sucks as far as having anything remotely as a historic downtown.Macon has that,but its all dead in its core.my friends loved it.They thought it was "picturesque".From the Hay House and at the time the Music Hall of Fame which was a blow to have lost.
Do you know if they offer "enterprise zones" like they do in Atlanta in economically depressed areas?

You have made two posts in this thread and in neither one did you comment on the topic. And you think I am derailing the thread? Classic.
I miss your opinions, I haven't laughed real hard on here since you stopped posting. Surely you have an opinion, do you care to share it or are you just trying to derail another thread by going off topic?
Pretty contradicting considering this post, your posts in this thread, and your overall post history. I've already responded to this thread. However when you have people constantly derailing thread after thread I surely have the right to express it in the thread that's being derailed.
