If Sherman had gotten trapped in the traffic on I-285 Atlanta would have never burned

A great country does great things.

Now TENS OF THOUSANDS of overpasses and bridges are falling apart across the country......hundred year-old water mains are popping........Many airports are of third-world status.........

Infrastructure was a bipartisan affair when America was a truly a great country.


It was a good run......
........OUCH......that's not fun to even say.

I hate to say it but the really chit roads are up north. On that point there can be no debate

is that a good thing?

And it's good to know that my experience in Atlanta wasn't any different than yours. Why does it take more time to get downtown from ATL than it takes to fly there?

MLB pitcher Pascual Perez earned the nicknames 'Perimeter Pascual' and 'Wrong-Way Perez' after missing a start on August 19, 1982, while circling Atlanta's Interstate 285 (a ring road/beltway) 3 times looking for Atlanta–Fulton County Stadium, he ran out of gas and arrived at the ballpark 10 minutes late.

Sadly he was found beaten to death years later in his DR home. Apparent robbery

(Holy crow that was 3 stadiums ago)
