Power Breakfast: Marietta Lockheed plant humming with work, new tarmac limit, MARTA, Greenbriar, Caray

There’s good news on the factory floor for a change.

AJC staffer Dan Chapman reports that the dire warnings of layoffs at Lockheed Martin Corp., maker of the F-22 jet fighter assembled in Marietta, have not materialized.

Today, he writes, the massive airplane factory hums with work.  Jobs may not be lost any time soon, if at all. In fact, Lockheed Martin could hire another 500 workers in Cobb County over the next few years.

F-22 production may be winding down, but work on the C-5 and C-130J cargo planes, as well as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, could employ another generation of Georgians.

Why do the Braves insist on pushing another terrible Caray on us? Very few fans cared for his dad (the media always played it up that he was more liked by fans than was the actual reality) and I’ve yet to find any fans that do not think Chip flat-out stinks.
