Decatur, GA

The last Sunday I was in town I was able to escape my strip mall hell of Duluth and just a short ride away thanks to the tip of a friend in Tenn. discovered the comforts of Decatur. I found some good food, a funky book shop where I picked up a short biography of Kafka illustrated by R. Crumb, and then a nice pub, The Angel, to read it in.

I have visited many of the more northern Civil War sites but aside from Chickamauga and Lookout Mountain have seen few of the southern sites. There are a quite a few markers surrounding Atlanta due to Sherman's March.

The plaque next to the bench reads: "A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouths of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government." - Thomas Jefferson

Some real kids enjoying the cooling mists from the sculpted kids. Have a good weekend.
