The Economist on T-SPLOST

The Economist takes a look at our very own little T-SPLOST melodrama:
...The vote raises important questions: what does metro Atlanta want to look like ten years from now? What government functions do citizens believe important enough to voluntarily tax themselves to fund?...
and highlights a new and sinister angle to the debate: some local politicians are claiming it's all a United Nations plot to force everyone to walk and ride bikes. Read the whole thing here. If you too are concerned about "the tyranny of bike lanes," follow their link to The Atlantic Wire article by that title.
