Here's an interesting compilation of memories of Atlanta... the era when Atlanta went from "The Heart of Dixie" to "Hotlanta!" as the piece puts it:

"...We look back at Atlanta’s transformation in the ’70s. It was a breathless transition for the city, and its growth stood in stark contrast to the nation’s other urban centers. Atlanta went from the Heart of Dixie to Hotlanta, the hub of the new South."

A lot of cities have had their "boom" eras and unfortunately a lot have had their down eras, i.e., Detroit. I hope Atlanta doesn't go the way of Detroit, but the way it looks now unless something drastically happens it will. Even a city as large as Chicago could very well become the next Detroit. Atlanta has "peaked" and unless it steers from its current course it will become another "also ran" like Detroit and other cities.

I was lucky enough to grow up in the Seventies and be young in the Eighties.(not in Atlanta though) But what a great period of time that was and music was actually music. The greatest period of all-time for female rockers of all-time easily. Linda Ronstadt, Debbie Harry, Patty Smyth, Chrissie Hynde, Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Ann and Nancy Wilson, and others.

As far as the large cities up North going downhill, we have to factor in the closing of giant steel mills, the auto industry, and the manufacturing of household goods, due to cheaper imports.
It took Pittsburgh quite a bit of time to recover, and I don't think it's fully recovered yet.
The "Up North" cities are now called the "Rust Belt", because industry has left.
Well, we gave the Asian countries the rope to hang us with, and now we're paying dearly for it. I'll never buy a foreign car.There should be an import tax on goods coming here, just as our products are heavily taxed over there. It's a fact that the Asian countries never like to play fair when it comes to goods. I have an old Road and Track circa 1970 issue, and it had an article of how high were taxes on import cars coming to Japan. They show a Pinto which at that time was worth around $1700 here in the US, but would cost around $12000 in Japan!
How's that for equality in trading?
It's obvious you know absolutely nothing about the auto industry. Thank God for the imports or all you'd have to choose from would be Cimarrons, Pintos and horrible auto barges.

True, there was some great music in that era!

And the steel industry? I would never buy a Japanese car. I still have my 1973 Mach 1 that I bought new in 73, and it hasn't rusted out, neither has my 3/4 ton 1954 GMC.
OBTW, do the unemployed people get the blame, or the car manufacturers get the blame for producing sorry cars during that period? Someone has to be blamed, it's the "American way"!
Blame the Big 3 bean counters. The car companied went to hell when the "car guys" were shown the door and replaced by the money boys.

BTW: Sorry about the Tubstang. You missed the good ones by a couple of years. A VW GTI will suck it's headlights out and get 35 MPG.

Yep...Atlanta has disentegrated into a big n()gger butthole called UhLanna. Just a bigShitty toilet containing millions of pieces of ShitN()ggers. Uhlannas best days are long gone and the decline is unstoppable.

I love the burbs...not many n()ggers to deal with.
