Tweet of the Day, Successful #DeltaGreen Op On Atlanta’s I-20 edition.

They’re talking about a gas leak – or lack thereof – because a portion of Atlanta’s I-85 caught fire at the end of March (first picture below).  Ironically, that one was actually part of an Ordo Veritas veil-out.  OV and Delta Green tend to get along surprisingly badly, considering that they’re essentially in the same line of work…

Ooh, crossover adventures!  It’d be a memorable game.  And a short one, too.

No word if there was later a shootout/explosion at some Atlanta gangster’s warehouse.

Let’s set the scenario:

As interstate crashes go, they don’t get much stranger than the one that shut down I-75 in Clayton County for several hours overnight.

The bizarre chain of events began around 10 p.m. Thursday, when a Clayton sheriff’s deputy clocked two northbound motorcycles at 110 mph, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Executive summary: Northbound motorcycle #1 (stolen) hits car, goes over the divider, smashes into windshield of southbound semi.  Semi tractor catches on fire.  Semi trailer destroys the divider, hits northbound SUV.  Motorcycle #1 is now on fire, is hit by southbound taxi, which also catches on fire.  Motorcycle #1 driver in critical condition; semi driver taken to hospital.

Motorcycle #2 flees the scene. (more…)

And this is why you should be careful when trying armed robbery in a CCW state.

I personally would not spend $180 on a pair of sneakers.  Other than that, I’m pleasantly surprised that the Huffington Post decided to report on this:

A man trying to rob Atlanta customers waiting to buy the latest LeBron James sneakers was killed by a shopper who continued to wait on line after the shooting, according to NBC News.

The robber, a man who has not been identified yet, sauntered up to people before dawn in Atlanta, waiting in line to purchase the $180 Lebon X Denim kicks by Nike on the day they were released, CNN reported. The shoes, endorsed by the star forward on the Miami Heat, could be sold for a much higher price on eBay.

Witnesses said the thief pulled out a gun and tried to rob the crowd.

Well, I’m off to Atlanta.

Peaches, pralines, Coke products, and a certain resentment towards William Tecumseh Sherman; am I forgetting anything else that the place exports?
