(Yes we say “Atlana” down here)
Born and raised in Atlanta. Proud of being a Southerner, while at the same time not always proud of some of the role the south has played in history.
This blog isn’t just about Atlanta and the south, instead it’s mostly about life and my observations of it.

@BillOutlaw Nope, I'm not saying that. I'm saying we spent 20 years trying to get the afghan people to fight for themselves. How did that work out? We lost almost 3,000 Americans. For what? Yes we should have gone over there and kicked AlQueda's ass. But we should have left after that.Read More
@Susan4745743 @axios No, my point was that we helped create this mess.Read More
Listening to "Tech Jawn" with @RobbDunewood, @BrothaTech, and @TechLifeSteph. Great show, but I wonder if the issue with facial recognition, soap dispensers, etc could partially be due to physics. Light reflects better off of light objects than it does dark ones.Read More

@BillOutlaw Maybe if we just stay out of other country's business... Naw, that will never happen.Read More
Being an old Southerner in the new south isn’t easy. The Atlanta I knew as a child, teenager, and young adult has changed.
Changed in a good way.
Gone are the old stereotypes like “Dukes of Hazzard”. Atlanta is home to a diverse culture now. The new Hollywood, home to Tyler Perry who just opened his new studio. Also many Marvel films were made here, plus The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, etc.
It has a vibrant gay community. Many HipHop studios.
Some still cling to the old ways, but they are in the minority. Still many of us are looked at as redneck, racist, wife beating, moonshine making rubes.
Come down to Atlanta and see for yourself. We even have paved roads…
