Atlanta Is a "Shithole Redeemed"

It was a tough week for Atlanta's image. First we found out we're the last place Americans who don't currently live here want to move. Then TB showed up at Occupy Atlanta's official shelter. And Tech lost. But chin up, Atlanta! A promient writer who covers cities and the environment has declared that Atlanta, while once a shithole, has redeemed itself. Yes we're a nightmare of sprawl. And yes, our air quality is atrocious. But we've got the Beltline going for us. And TSPLOST (well, it needs to pass first). So go into the weekend knowing we've got Greg Hanscom's respect. Yay!
