  1. What on earth is going on? I have a friend who lives in a nice condo (but not one of the super-high-rises) just off Peachtree Street, and he and a friend were robbed at gunpoint at 7pm the other night in front of their building. Scary. One must be careful and alert–street smart–at all times. You can do this and still not live in fear.
