Well, I'm not sure if that means you have some time to kill. But if it was me, I'd run to the Zoo for some tourist action, then go a block down the road to the rooftop bar at Six Feet Under near Oakland Cemetery, and maybe walk around there. That keeps you outside on a nice day.
But I'm a weird ...

I think Kennesaw is a decent distance from Atlanta if you are planning a rush hour trip. And by rush hour, I mean 4 to 7.
Sweetwater Brewery is open from 5:30 to 7:30.
Atlantic Station is pretty straightforward and easy to roam around (although not a favorite of locals...but I enjoy it). ...

Japan will be back eventually. It's the only energy source that makes sense for them. And shutting that down because of an old plant that got hit with a record tsunami is not a reason to suffer high energy costs. Learn your lessons, fix your regulatory body and invest in newer, safer designs, and...

I agree. I was at the office at 10AM proclaiming that they were wrong, there's nothing going to happen. Then boom. I'm not blaming anybody. Just what happens when a city gets hit once every three years by a snow storm.
Next time, maybe they'll pre-treat. ...

Not a racing guy, but Bristol is completely different from Talladega right? I've been to Bristol. The views won't be great. But it's binoculars bad, not telescope. Part of what's great about racing is the booze policy, and weekend tailgating. I don't see that happening. Also, there's going to ...

Everybody is making this sound unethical (taking so many kids). But it shouldn't matter if you are under the scholarship limit. As long as you don't cut kids at a relatively high clip, I don't see the issue.
That being said, I have no idea where Tennessee is relative to the scholly limit. But ...

It's really a progressive decrease. You can test it out by looking at BlueNile's pricing. ...

As long as the general public is being taught economics by either public school teachers, or not at all, then libertarianism can never win. You really have to believe in free markets.
