Atlanta is about to get a gigantic aquarium. It's part of revitalizing the downtown area, which is an almost complete wasteland after 6:00 PM weekdays, and most weekends.

As part of setting up the aquarium its sponsor, Bernie Marcus, wants panhandlers out of the downtown area. You see, one reason to avoid downtown is the aggressive panhandling.

Well, the bums are striking back.

My prediction: initial eviction of bums, followed by slow return, followed eventually by eviction of bums, followed by....

You see, Atlanta really needs the money. Apart from the city of Atlanta, the rest of the metro area is booming. If the eco-terrorists don't get Altantic Station, and the aquariam is a success, the city might just see a revitalization.
