Is it absolutely necessary to publish anything from inside of Atlanta/I-285. If you will take a copy of any Metro Area Map; you may notice that the shape of that roadway actually resembles the shape of a toilet bowl. Do you think that is just a coincidence? We are deluged by the murderous, lawlessness, of what occurs there. Is it just for the purient reaction? If so.... I can live without it. Aaron
