This is an interesting question. In the past, when there have been proposals to expand MARTA into Cobb, the Cobb residents strongly opposed the idea and those proposals never got traction. Moving the Braves to the area, though, might be ab...

As an in-town season ticket holder and fan who witnessed Game 6 against the Indians in '95, I absolutely hate this move. The stadium is about a 10 minute drive from my house and I would end up riding my bike to the stadium at least half the time I attended ball games with my girlfriend (yes, even t...

I personally don't like the Riverwalk too much. It's a little too Disneyworld-ish for me. All the restaurants along there serve the same type of crappy touristy "tex-mex" food. This was five or six years ago, however, and things may have changed.
There is one really, really good Mexican restau...

[quote]Homeland seems like the kind of show that would take the risk of eliminating a big piece on the board if it makes sense for the story.
The producers originally wanted Brody's plan to go through and kill off the character. Would have been intense.
