The growth of metro Atlanta is not unlike a cancer, as I've said before ad
nauseam. The states of Georgia and Alabama have passed court-imposed
deadlines on how to control the flows of the Tallapoosa, Coosa and
Chattahoochee Rivers because Georgia wants to impound _all_ the waters even
worse than they do now. You know it's a bad situation when Alabama
bureaucrats are the good guys(!). I haven't heard about the Atlanta Aquarium
water diversions, maybe yer pulling our legs, but it's consistent with past

And anyway, the Chattanooga Aquarium is extremely good!
