I am with you palmer. You get to click the link with the pic of Jimi and then you don’t give any details about the “Experience Hendrix” event at Fox on Sat night. Typical bait and switch, to get clicks on a crap article.

Wow, what a boring bunch of garbage on the “to do” list. Atlanta is great for the sedentary person who wants to sit, shop, eat, and watch. No wonder it’s the fat capital of the Country.
