For the past year, at least two Atlanta city workers have sat in a parked truck 24 hours a day, seven days a week in a lot on a hill overlooking the Midtown Place shopping center.
At a cost of untold thousands of public dollars, they sat, watched DVDs and ate fried chicken as they baby-sat a hole in the ground for which no one wants to take responsibility.
City workers have been sitting by the hole around the clock in case a big pump has to be turned on. Officials say they are unable to estimate how much the watch operation has cost.

We have anaraks and I have a Foster's oil can ($8), so we're ready for whatever weather we get.

In October, Paul Stanley of Kiss is coming to a gallery in the Perimeter Mall in Atlanta. He will be doing a meet and greet with the purchase of his art. The pieces start out at about $1500, so I'm sure that they're prints. This is his self-portrait, but you can see all of them at his website.

I'll try to supply some pictures of my first ride (provided I am able to protect my enormous melon).
This is the helmet I ordered this afternoon. There are two questions that might immediately jump to mind. Here are the answers to those two questions.
- I am purchasing an ATV for the heck of it
- My huge head is so large that a helmet must be special-ordered. If I only had a normal (or even an extra large) human-sized cranium, then I could have had my pick of 100 different models that were in stock.
There was a sign hanging from The Chop House that showed "758*" and there were people that were holding up asterisks and even wearing asterisks on their shirts. The asterisk, of course, indicate that the record over hometown hero Hank Aaron is tainted.

There are a couple of obvious (to me) omissions:
Let me know your favorite guitarist that was left off the list...
This weekend, our friend Kerri was in town to visit her Aunt Mary. The four of us went to see the Indigo Girls qt the Atlanta Botanical Garden. This was the second time I've seen them. If you've never seen them, I would highly recommend it.
It was close to two hours of Amy and Emily on the stage alone with their two guitars. They just rock like few acts I've ever seen.
