Isn't it funny how our media promotes the fact that Albany is listed in the 10 most impoverished areas in the US, but at the same time doesn't support our local merchants? The new manager for Cumulus radio is driving a car he bought in Macon? Is this going to help our local economy. I know this doesn't change the big picture, but it seems if you're promoting how our local economy is so bleek, you could do something to help it out. After all, it doesn't seem right that I hear local car dealers all over the radio and he didn't even shop with them?
