Rusty Paul – Barbarian Numero Uno As I now have to frequent Sandy Springs way more often than usual, I find myself having to be detoured all around the $220+ million money pit that is to become City Center. At the center of this pit is erected a crane. At one time, at the top […]

Oh, the Freaking Irony!

Bill Simon, Thursday, November 5th, 2015

There were two news stories I saw yesterday that struck me with such a flash of WTF, that my brain would not let me go to sleep tonight until I got this (very short) Vine out of my system. Story One: This story in the Fulton County Daily Report about people like Zell Miller and […]

Every budget year, we hear cries and lobbying for […]
