In a CNN story on Atlanta’s tourism push…

Barker said it’s hard to judge the campaign based on the information that’s been released so far. He predicted that a “Three O’s” theme — opportunity, openness and optimism — announced last week is more about building local support for the campaign than anything that will become part of a marketing strategy.

“No one’s going to come to Atlanta for ‘the three O’s,”‘ he said.

What?! I’m shocked. I mean, I’m here for the optimism. I mean, I just look around and see all these optimistic people around me and I think – wow. Atlanta, man. I mean, wow. Don’t you?

But don’t worry – we’re going to have a theme song that will just make our city the most attractive city in the world. I mean, how many other cities have a bona fide theme song?

    I heard about this advertising scheme on a another blog, that gives away free computers. It sounded like a scam, but after I googled it, it was legitmiate. You have to sign up for an offer from one the sponser companies. I did the free credit report one and canceled before the free trial time was up. Here’s the link, check it out.

    I was feeling all kinds of optimistic m’self, till I clicked on that spam ad comment and got sucked into a pyramid scheme replete with drooling webtards. Damn!

    C’mon fellow Atlantans, we need to get behind the city pride & show everyone our ‘O’ face!
