Yesterday I was riding MARTA southbound. After we passed Civic Center, the train conductor announced the next stop, Peachtree Center. He also named some of the destinations nearby the station, like the hotel district, main public library, central business district, etc. And also? "The Paramount."

Now, that jolted me! I assume the conductor either slipped up or was making a joke, since the Paramount is one of the old movie theaters downtown that was demolished years and years ago. Much as I'd like to get off and go to the Paramount, I suspect it's not happening.
