Moved from St. Simons Island, Georgia to New Orleans, Louisiana in September of 2006. Because who wants to spend all their time playing golf, drinking…
Raise less corn and more hell.
If the city has the resources to check every street vendor selling cold drinks on a second line route, they have enough to ticket parade land grabbers and awful ladder people. I would totally support a complete banning of ladders and furniture from all parade routes. You want to bring the kids? Put 'em up on your own damn shoulders and give other kids the chance to participate.
No, the saddest thing on the internet was "Party in the UGA." You should be able to find that abomination on YouTube somewhere, because things on the internet never die.
That being said, I've begun to have serious concerns over the state of the undergraduate population at my alma mater in recent years.
I remember all the doom and gloom predictions for Athens and Atlanta area bars and restaurants when the smoking ban came through in Georiga. I remember all the doom and gloom predictions back when Louisiana moved to no smoking in restaurant establishments.
The predictions are the ones that have been proven false. Doom and gloom never materialized.
Like checking your tax records, this is how prospective employers/landlords weed out those individuals they do not want to hire without having to give actual cause. You know, like "I don't want to hire that guy because of his skin color" or "my friends want these jobs and I don't want them to compete with other applicants."
Friends are in, those who complain don't get the job/apartment. You comply with the letter of civil rights law if not the spirit.
One concept: 31 oz of iced coffee and chicory.
The reason Starbucks can get away with this is because they serve the weak stuff.
Yeah, you rite.
Back in the day (the late 80's and early 90's), Pizza Hut used to make some pretty tasty pizza. No one believes me when I say this, and when I lump them in the same category as Taco Bell and KFC. Those were some standards of my childhood (especially dem KFC biscuits). Today, I think all three are owned by the same parent company, and have long been dependent on advertising over product.
I hate to be the curmudgeon here, but how long do you think it will be before the city comes down on enterprises like these two, the same way they did with the food trucks and street musicians?
