Morning Metro: Hyrdration Volunteers Needed, Ponce Book, and a Road Map

  1. Kind of funny to see on that 1946 map how Decatur was pretty much the eastern extent of the metro area at the time and it looks like Buckhead was probably about as far north as you could go without being “in the sticks.”

  2. From a website quoting the Oxford English Dictionary:
    The OED says: “g. the sticks: a remote, thinly populated, rural area; the backwoods; hence, in extended (freq. depreciatory) use, any area that is off the beaten track or thought to be provincial or unsophisticated; esp. in phr. in the sticks. orig. U.S.
