St. Mary's is on Fire

While most of the world focuses on other, dire news from my original stomping grounds, my parents can actually see St. Mary's Wilderness Area burning. And for those of you who know me well, you can guess my feelings here. I know it's a natural part of the ecosystem, but I'm still gutted by it.

We're OK

Thanks to all that have e-mailed, blogged, called, etc. We're OK even though the tornado passed within 50 or so yards of our loft. For some pictures of the damage in my 'hood, here's a link to Flickr images tagged "Atlanta" and "Tornado". Oh yeah, that Loft they showed on the news all day Saturday? It's just on the other side of the cemetery. And yes, it is as bad as it looks.

Kottke.org is 10 years old today.
Google Sky. Like Google Earth for Stars. I could probably waste hours with this.

Falcons Release Warrick Dunn

File this under I don't believe it. Warrick Dunn has joined a long list of other fan favorites. Dunn was released by the Falcons today.

Long time readers know I don't pay much attention to American Football, but the major moves being made by the Falcons lately have attracted even my attention. Sure, Dunn may be past his prime a bit, but the guy has been such a pillar of the community here in Atlanta, I'm still wrapping my head around it a bit. Don't they think he could hang around and mentor some of the running backs at least. To me, this looks like housecleaning going a bit too far. This is not a move the Braves would have made. (Though, the Patriots on the other hand....) So there goes a little bit more goodwill for the team in the community. And I can guarantee the interest in the Falcons will return to almost nil once again. Thank God for the EPL.
