"Last week, demolition crews started razing a 60-year-old, low-rise parking deck across the street from the Georgia State Capitol in what hopefully/doubtfully is the beginning of a new trend," reports Josh Green.

"The parking area will be supplanted by an outdoor space for protesting, rallying or just relaxing called Liberty Plaza.
