I went to Stone Mtn not knowing about the carving monument, I just thought it was a giant, one-stone 'mountain'.  It felt icky, seeing it.  I know that's the snowflake response, but I was in my late teens, and that was my genuine reaction to it.  

The news bitches over such impermanent things like rebel flags and minor statues...and yet the massive, permanence of the leaders of the confederacy on Stone Mtn never gets a mention.  Odd.

I predict if my family was black, that might not be a spot we'd visit.

I love when Sean McDonough's voice breaks during a big play, lol.

I've never heard of Stone Mountain either.  Had no idea. Not sure I'd feel "icky" if i saw it, but it's highly unlikely I'd ever go to visit it.

I've no problem with Stone Mountain or the confederate flag.

But, I don't see either of them as a symbol of slavery.

Took this pic at work the other day, thought it was pretty neat.
I thought I settled my debts that night on the ride home
But I have still got hell to pay

Yeah, where is that taken?

Also DF - I'm curious. Is there some sort of national certification for being in the foul zone or on tracks? My surveyors could use that if available.

I'm certified by one RR company in Washington State, but that's it.

Pic was taken pretty much middle of nowhere in West/central Arizona. 

And Badge as far as I know there isn't, but if your surveyors need to foul some railroad tracks to do their job I'd suggest contacting the RR at least a week in advance, letting them know exactly where/when/why you need to foul, and they can possibly arrange a window for you to allow your surveyors access without rail traffic or limiting it. 

I know sometimes when utility companies need to work on power lines over RR tracks they can get these windows, same with the city/state/county when they need to do maintenance/construction on a bridge/overpass over the tracks.

There were a lot of black folks at the park.  The NAACP protests the carving at times.  It is a large carving.

There is a nice golf course in the park and a nice view from the top, but it was hazy yesterday.  There was a group of Japanese in suits out there headed up the mountain on the tram thing.  Sky lift?

Parts of the Olympics were held out there.
