Apple Fans Line up for iPhone 5 – Buckhead Patch
Gregory Wood and his wife Jennifer Johnson were in line at the Apple Store at Lenox Square around 6:30 a.m. Friday, hoping to score a new iPhone 5. Around 9 a.m., they were still waiting, but were within minutes of getting their hands on the newest iPhone, which hit stores Friday, Sept. 21.

A sign, which read “I Heard The White House Smelled Like Collard Greens And Fried Chicken,” was just the latest controversial statement at the bar on Park Street Southeast in Marietta.
