Former Atl. Mayor on Richard Pryor and Random Links

"Scatological, but a comic genius."

Former Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson (1973-1981 and 1989-1993) after seeing Richard Pryor in concert.


I've assigned myself a crash course in Atlanta history, using the kinda sweet/kinda annoying Atlanta-Fulton Public Library Online System's to get me my reading material.

The above quote comes from Frederick Allen's 1996 book, "Atlanta Rising.' It's a good read, and tackles the city's history by looking at the people that made up the power elite. I like my history books full of charactors to keep the events from getting too abstract. In that regard, it's much like "The Power and the Money, The Making of Las Vegas and Its Hold on America 1947-2000" by Sally Denton and Roger Morris.

Anyways, Allen's book is my first good primer on the city, the first bad book, Archival Atlanta. I was hoping for a collection of unique tales told well, but this just felt like I was listening to a rambling relative with questionable memory.

Now on to the random crap...


I went to Hartwick College with this guy, The Lizardman. He didn't look like that back then.

It's not just a crazy conspiracy, it's a fashion statement.

"Black Helicopters (BH) are not just helicopters with a black paint-job as you may have been told. They are, in fact, autonomous agents -- lifeforms -- created by New World Order (NWO) agencies via nanobiotechnology. Their primary purpose is to spy on the activities of average citizens in order to gather tactical information and discover "subversives" who are not bowing to the will of the Liberati's UN-backed Federal Government. Furthermore, when the NWO Invasion takes place in the not-too-distant future, they will round up citizens for internment in concentration camps or carry out the elimination of the more vocally anti-Liberati."
