      Peaches aren't grown here any more (though there are 71 streets in Atlanta with a variant of "Peachtree" in their name) -- Vidalia onions are grown in, well, Vidalia,
      -- Jimmy Carter is from Plains (though I live 1/2-mile away from the Carter Center) -- need I go on?

      We do have The Temple from "Driving Miss Daisy," the Museum of Puppetry Arts, and the Cyclorama, and Gladys Knight. There is a lot of cool stuff here, which is why this yankee has lived here for 20 years.

      It's not just a zip code, it's an attitude.
