Maynard Jackson, RIP

Maynard Jackson, the first black person to be mayor of Atlanta, has died of a heart attack at the age of 65. He was the graduation speaker when I graduated from Georgia Tech. For all his faults, he is mostly responsible for making this city into the economic power that it is now.
