The Prince Avenue Flags Made the Atlanta News

Tim Bryant had a great quote on Facebook: He is “at the same time amazed and yet also unsurprised that Athens, of all places, makes a statewide issue out of crossing the street. “

11Alive did a story yesterday on the new Prince Avenue orange flag interpretive dance program. 

“Give the driver more target value, if you will,” ACC traffic engineer Steve Decker said. (Target value is right—hey, a guy with the flag! Two points!)

Today, because TV news stations are copycats, a Channel 2 truck was parked in the Flagpole parking lot. A cameraman explained to me that, to them, it’s a lighthearted break from the usual TV news fare of murders and fires.

Must be a slow news day in Atlanta.
