re: Movies you liked when you were younger that make you gag today. - PJinAtl
Tweenage me loved Space Camp. I think because I really wanted to go (never got to) and I had a thing for Lea Thompson. Now just the thought of it makes me shake my head. I also really liked Howard the Duck. I saw part of it a few months back and I had to turn it off - couldn't even watch it for the ...

re: Gwinnett Braves rebranding/renaming - PJinAtl
I guess that leaves out Gwinnett Sprawl as well. I am halfway expecting something like the Gwinnett Groundhogs, as they already have the groundhog mascot, and the official state groundhog lives in Lilburn....

re: Anyone ever watched God's and generals or Gettysburg? - PJinAtl
[quote]Gettysburg follows its source material very well. Quite faithful to the book. Gods and Generals does not. Ronald F. Maxwell's big mistake was turning Gods and Generals into a motion picture. It should have been a TV miniseries and it should have followed the book. It would have been gr...

re: Andrew Carleton Hype Train - PJinAtl
Flipped on the end of the game Saturday after the Braves game was over and show him come in. Was shocked to see a 16 y/o local on the team. If he is as good as they say, it could blow support for the team through the roof (as if it isn't already)....

re: Braves fans, how do you like your new ballpark? - PJinAtl
[quote]I have heard it's a fricking nightmare getting in & out for a game [/quote]Went for the first time yesterday and getting in/out was a breeze. We parked in Lot 42 (near the Windy Hill Marriot). It was maybe a 15 minute walk up Interstate North Parkway, across Windward Parkway and we were right ...

[quote]However, the Britain would abolish slavery early in the 19th century, which can be seen in this photo where a British merchant on the HMS Sphinx is removing the slave’s restrains circa 1907.[/quote]Something isn't right here. 1907 is early 20th century. I am pretty sure slavery was eliminated...

re: Robert E. Lee questions - PJinAtl
[quote]It has widely been discussed that common sentiment and identity in those days was that people considered themselves residents of their towns and sovereign states FIRST and U.S. citizens a distant second.

re: Random Players in Atlanta Sports History - PJinAtl
[quote]The Braves had this strange fixation with getting someone who was considered a "true leadoff hitter". I don't know the other factors that came into play since the internet wasn't going strong back in those days, but this fixation led to dealing Justice and Grissom for 1 year of Lofton and Kle...

re: McMasters Briefing on Russia Oval Office Meeting 10:30AM - PJinAtl
My guess is that the President can tell someone something in the confines of the Oval as he wishes. However, a leaker may repeat something that, while perfectly ok to be shared in a closed environment, shouldn't go out to the unwashed masses. Also, even if the actual Intel isn't leaked, just leak...
