Braves Exodus

Is it ironic that the Atlanta City Council will ask Atlanta Braves officials to serve on a task force with a goal of sparing the Turner Field area from becoming a post-apocalyptic wasteland? Other members could include the usual city government suspects, two Democratic legislators and Georgia State University's president. On the surface, the task force's actual task seems fairly straightforward: "Identify recommendations for commercial and residential development, public safety, and transportation opportunities in the neighborhoods in the vicinity of Turner Field."
