Atlanta – a city built by dreamers – should welcome Tyler Perry Studios
I love Atlanta. Born at Grady Hospital, and growing up in Druid Hills/Candler Park area at a time many were leaving the City, to now witness the ascendant trajectory of the City with its influx of population and businesses, is energizing and deeply gratifying because the hard work of so many leaders through the years has been validated.

We can’t keep ignoring the need to invest in transportation infrastructure
Lately, I’ve been watching Aaron Sorkin’s latest TV series The Newsroom. In true Sorkin fashion it’s rife with overly emotional characters spitting out $10-words and plenty of snark. In a recent episode, an official from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) goes on TV to declare the impending death of humanity due to global warming. When the fictional news anchor Will McAvoy asks how to rectify the situation, the agency head casually remarks, “We should have turned the cars off 20 years ago.” Saportareport.com

The 10 best rivalries in college football
The 121-year-old Alabama-Auburn rivalry has never been short on drama. But I’m betting that nothing will ever top last year’s Iron Bowl. With one second left in the game and the score tied 28-28, Crimson Tide kicker Adam Griffith lined up for a 57-yard field goal. The attempt fell short, however, and Chris Davis returned it 109 yards for the game-winning touchdown. The “Kick Six” will go down as the single best play in the history of the rivalry. USA Today

4 of 5 Worst States for LGBT People Are in South
If you pay attention to the news, it's hard not to get swept up in the feeling that things are getting better for America's LGBT citizens. However, after riding a wave of momentum in the courts this year, marriage equality hit a new roadblock in November, when the Sixth Circuit Court upheld bans in Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and Tennessee. The decision is likely to force a ruling from the Supreme Court, a body that's up until now been "leading from behind" on this issue. It's also a reflection of the broader inequalities that still exist for LGBT people in today's America, where activists note that marriage is only part of the picture. Rolling Stone

GREENSBORO, NC — A local developer is taking a leap into territory few have explored since before the recession.
