Alabamian Calls ATL 'Totally Out of Control' and Eroding

New, 33 comments

Former Chairman of the Birmingham Regional Chamber of Commerce David Sher seems to have an axe to grind with the Capital of the South. In an open letter to The Birmingham News, Sher went to town criticizing Atlanta under the guise of building a better Birmingham. During his tirade, he questions, "Why would anyone in their right mind want to live in Atlanta?" before expounding with this: "It is too big, unwieldy, and totally out of control. The quality of life there will only deteriorate." But hey, we'd be mad too if we lived in Alabama ...
