Atlanta is a beautiful,vibrant city with many things to offer. It is one of the top metropolitan cities in the entire United States and while it is not on par as far as being a major hub of the world with the likes of New York City or Los Angeles, but it is definitely on par with other major cities, like Boston or Miami. Atlanta is on the upswing, and has been for the better part of two and a half decades, however the city does not always get the respect it deserves.
The Atlanta Braves, Georgia’s longest running professional team, is a storied organization with a ton of history and legendary players.

The Disney Princess an interesting trope, a concept that is charming and endearing yet leaves many with much to be desired. The idea that a knight in shining armor is going to whisk you away and save you from all of the monsters and evils of the world (debt, jerks, and boredom for those of us in the real world) is as old as the spoken word.
Charlie Sheen– not as an actor or entertainer– but as a cultural phenomenon, came and went last year like a supernova or a dying star. For a brief time it was awesome to watch, and many of us were amused and taken with this famous person going around with a briefcase full of cocaine and a hotel room full of hookers.
