Daily Quote...

One of the serious problems in planning the fight against American doctrine, is that the Americans do not read their manuals,
nor do they feel any obligation to follow their doctrine...

    me too, and because I live in ATL I use it most of the time!

    I always thought Hartsfield/Jackson (ATL) was petty easy to get around compared to a lot of other large airports. I usually enjoyed my evening layovers becuase I knew of a couple of smaller bars tucked away at the ends of Concourse B and D (I think - it's been a long time) and would always meet interesting people over a couple of cold ones. BUT, I almost never had to drive there and deal with parking/security etc, I only had layovers.
