Digusting side of city growth
Thursday. 6.19.08 2:28 am
I live near the small town of Commerce Ga POP 6000. Very nice little town. I am there everyday because my church is downtown. It is full of old houses built in the late 1800's till now. Big beautiful houses that have history and add charactor to the town. These old houses can never be replaced. History gone forever. On the other end of the spectrum metro Atlanta.

I hate Atlanta and it's metro area. No class no charactor. No scenery. Nothing but walgreens, mcdonalds, CVS, kroger, publix, burger king, malls and strip malls. Over and over again. As you go down any road in the Metro you see the same businesses repeat themselves every 1/4 mile over and over. I can't stand it.

A fews years back Commerce got it's first CVS. Tore down a three story house from the 40's to build it. Now directly across the stree they are building a stinking walgreens. Oh I wanna vomit. they are tearing down three old houses that added charactor to the little town. For what? A nother walgreens to add to the other 906 other ones in the metro. Ok I am guessing 906 prolly not that many but there is one no matter which way you turn your head.

I am so mad I am about to cry. I bet they tear down my old school and my friends house to build a stinkin mcdonalds.

So mad about it I want to squeez somebodys head for letting those sorry franchize chain store husslin buncha gypsies into town.

It is an ugly thing. There are few inhabitable places on the planet that commercialism hasn't already consumed. There used to be an amazing view from my house...the sunsets against the trees were AMAZING. Until some asshole cut down the trees and turned them into apartments. So now I have an amazing view of the sunset against the backdrop of apartments. Just a little bit less magical.

Some people thrive off the city life with all the bustle and business...but it's getting harder and harder to find a place to escape from that. It's spreading everywhere :-/ Funny how in the next decade oil prices are going to continue to grow, and soon the big cities will be forced to downsize into more centralized, self-sufficient communities. Not sure when this'll happen, but let's hope all the buildings from the 1800s can survive the wait.
