Gap between U.S. rich, poor is widest in Atlanta

(run comparasen with violent crimes)

This is a post I am just putting up for now because I am out of time and need to process it for a while. However, my initial reaction is that Gainesville has a higher incarceration ratio than the state, the state has a higher incarceration ration than the nation and the nation has a higher incarceration ratio than any country in the world. How can this be when the economic engines of the county are education, medicine, and government. How this be when the education level is one of the highest in the nation. How can this be when there are few if any ‘unclean’ ecological businesses?

The biggie is how can we have one of the highest high school drop out/non-graduate levels in the state and at the same time rank so high in the SAT scores. Simple, there is a precious few if any middle class and also there is a two tier education system. Anyone that does not graduate from high school in Gainesville has precious little chance of good employment. However, Gainesville has one hell of a big drug (legal and illegal) appitite and that has to be fed.

Non-high school graduates are the indespensable but disposable middlemen between the assorted drug cartels and the responsible professionals who consider it their preoggative to use recreational drugs.
