Macon: Home of John Rocker and Jack Ellis

I suggest that Macon NOT put Mayor Ellis in charge of public relations for the City. In today's Telegraph article detailing his interview with Al-Jezeera, the Mayor made the following comparison:

"He compared the attention his conversion has drawn to the national media focus that turned to Macon when former Atlanta Braves pitcher and Macon native John Rocker made disparaging comments to a reporter about minorities and homosexuals."

Okay. That's not exactly the image we've been working for, Mayor. There is a silver lining. If we keep marketing ourselves this well, there will be no need for the hotel.
