It Won’t Die

The train, that is.

A Georgia Department of Transportation committee has recommended establishing a commuter rail line from downtown Atlanta to the metro suburb of Lovejoy in a nod, albeit a preliminary one, back in the direction of making Macon’s long-discussed passenger rail connection to Atlanta a reality.

The Macon-Atlanta route has been considered all but dead by all but its most vehement supporters. But if the full DOT board follows the recommendation of its intermodal committee headed by DOT board member Larry Walker, a former state representative from Perry, the idea could get new life.

    Build the train.

    Make it stop at the hotel.

    Require anyone applying for PeachCare to ride the train to Macon and spend the night in the hotel.

    If we could just require photo ID to board the train, most of GA’s problems would be solved.

    but there are CHILDREN in ga and they are taught, in gwinnett at least, about how the sun rotates around the earth–thus its fair game…

    If the King James bible was good enough for Jesus, it should be good enough for the children of Gwinnett.

    I thought the sun revolved around Georgia and therefore made it fair game to discuss on this blog.

    Rugby,

    It was 102 degrees today. These wings didn’t get far. That’s why I need the damn train.
