Since last week's oil drilling disaster off the Louisiana coast, it's been discovered that the well is spewing five times as much oil into the ocean as originally estimated, 210,000 gallons of oil each day - and no end is in sight.

This is expected to become one of 
the largest oil disasters in North American history.1

Transit Cuts Are Protested in Atlanta



Atlanta's already abysmal public transportation, MARTA, is threatened by cuts.  This is one huge step in the wrong direction.  Urban sprawl is the defining characteristic of Atlanta.  It's official slogan is, "Atlanta:  A place people drive to."
