    1. Great. Just great. Buckhead is going to have a namesake drama TV show!

      One that will showcase what we are all about. Really? C’mon. Really?

      “Buckhead” is described as a drama about ambition, sex and revenge set in the extravagant, high-stakes world of Atlanta politics, entertainment, churches and strip clubs.

      Great. Just great.

      C’mon … really? If somebody wants to produce a TV-Series … movie … rap song … or a bad joke that embraces all of the words used to describe the above – fine!

      But, why call it “Buckhead”?

      Just call it what it is – “Garbage”.

      All of the many Buckhead civic service groups (Rotary, etc.) — associations (BBA, etc.) — public interest organizations, churches, elected representative, volunteer leaders, livable this, or planning that —– should shake their collective heads over garbage being directly associated with where they invest their time, money and hearts for the betterment of all.

      It’s garbage. Really is. And, it just stinks that it is wrapped up in a single word “Buckhead” — and then served up for mass , nationwide, human consumption.

      Just call it what it is – “Garbage”.

      Best.
