    Cobb County GA: engineering a secret deal to move the Atlanta Braves to a few miles from here with no taxpayer input, then raising my property tax 50% to help pay for it.

    We're a little over a month away from opening day, and the godfather of all traffic jams....

    [Hope this doesn't read as political; if it does please delete]

    I graduated from Southern Tech in the mid 80's. It was exceedingly difficult to score well on a final exam when Lockheed was testing the wind tunnel or when a C-5 passed overhead and it got dark for 3 minute intervals until it passed over. You aren't exaggerating about the traffic. That's the #! reason that I never even considered taking a job in Atlanta or any of it's surrounding areas.
