A literal SEC border war looming?

    As funny as this story is (particularly the college football part), I could have done without them playing "Dueling Banjos" at the beginning.

    As for the the actual news ... maybe Atlanta doesn't need so many fucking people. I can't believe some politicians actually think they'll just take a one-mile stretch of land because it was drawn up that way hundreds of years ago. I'm sure the natives would rather us have just stayed in Europe, but that didn't happen.

    Atlanta is a monstrosity with a joke of a public transportation system, and I'm very sorry that its having water issues, but why can Tennessee not give Georgia some water without having its land annexed?

    I have an idea ... How about going to Nashville, Birmingham, Chattanooga or Knoxville and starting your business there? Seems a higher power is trying to tell Atlanta that it's overpopulated.

    You can call me concerned about my birth state's well-being. Atlanta is a monster and must be stopped.

    Just have pro sports games take place everywhere in the city. With Atlanta's history, that'll clear 'em out.

    Only half of them will leave if the Braves are in the playoffs, though.

    If they shift this border, wouldn't they have to shift the whole thing along the southern boundary of Tennessee all the way to the Mississippi River? I notice the border takes a slight jog at Pickwick Lake.

    That boundary's been in place for more than 200 years. I don't think the federal courts will touch this with a 10-foot pole. Call it squatter's rights if you like.
