If God has a voice, I'm pretty sure it sounds like James Earl Jones.  And with James Earl Jones narrating the introductory video here at the Cyclorama, a video that has not been redone since the 1980s, it sounds like God is giving you his personal account of the Civil War, specifically the Battle of Atlanta, which is what the Cycolrama, home of the world's largest oil painting, is all about.  This historic tourist trap is definitely worth the $10 admission.

But what to do with the intervening hour?  The friends had already seen the rest of Grant Park. We had no kids in tow, so, preferring to refrain from questions regarding any perceived creepiness, the zoo was out of the question.  That's when SF friend asked, "What's the deal with this Cyclorama?" "Don't know," we answered. "Wait, how long have you lived in Atlanta?" "A long time." "And how long have you lived in Grant Park?" he asked of my other friend. "The entire time." "You guys are idiots." "That we can't argue." "I'm...
