What's this blog about?
What living in Athens, Ga. makes me think about—that’s what this blog covers. You’ll likely find lots of posts about walkability, anti-poverty policy, local media, city planning and infrastructure because those topics always interest me. But there are plenty of other topics that will grab my attention, and there’ll be posts about them too. Everything here, however, will be about Athens in one way or another.
Because this is just a one man operation, this blog will not be a comprehensive resource about Athens. It’s a limited, personal view of the city. In my posts, I’ll strive to be fair and accurate but bias will inevitably show up. The sidebar links are not intended to be comprehensive; instead, they represent a selection of sites I personally find useful or interesting.
Are comments allowed?
Yes. Definitely. To prevent spam and guard against fraud and malice, I'll screen comments. This means there’ll usually be a delay before they are published. I’ll try to get them up within 24 hours. As part of the screening process, I’ll ask those who want to comment to provide an email address. The address will be used for purposes of identification only, and will not be published (unless requested otherwise).
