Are you a Whisk(e)y Apostle?
"You're the best bourbon drinkers ever!" - Margo (waitress at Bourbon's Bistro in Louisville)
I'm not surprised. Too bad.
Maybe somebody, after 130 years, still owes somebody else some money.
I used to live in Midtown and Home Park (and, for a while, on Luckie). I loved walking around and exploring the area. I knew what places were safe at night and what probably weren't, and right along Peachtree is going to be safe. It was just common sense. To hear others talk about it, though, you'd think there was crime on every corner.
I hear the same thing in Louisville from people in Oldham County. I live in Old Louisville and walk to and from events downtown. It's no big deal. Yes, there is a big mix of different ethnic groups around here. That just makes for better grocery stores and restaurants. It doesn't make the place less safe.

"Bob told me Canadians talk funny" isn't the same as "I think Canadians talk funny". I have not agreed with Bob's assessment or presented it as my own; I have simply reported it.
If it makes you feel better, I read your post as speaking to the author of what was written also. I did not feel you you were calling anyone racist.
I hope this thread takes a new direction soon. We don't need to be discussing this.
Well, if the story about the 4 roses corsage is not what it's cracked up to be, and Rufus Rose was a real founder of 4 roses, who were the other three Roses?
There's no such thing as bad whiskey, there's only over priced whiskey.
