• Good: Atlanta ranks among the top 3 cities in the country poised to become one of tomorrow’s tech meccas, according to Forbes. The publication reported that Atlanta’s total tech jobs have grown by 46.7 percent since 2010, which tops the national average by nearly 20 percentage points.

• Bad: Atlanta ranked eighth in the world for traffic congestion with an average annual commute time of 70.8 hours, according to INRIX’s 2016 Global Traffic Scorecard. It also lays claim to the worst traffic bottleneck: the intersection of I-85 and I-285. And all these studies came out before part of 85 collapsed last month!

• Ugly: The ATL ranked as the eighth least attractive city in the country, according to Travel+Leisure magazine. Fear not though, fellow citizens: apparently we graced the most attractive list pretty recently so maybe they caught us on a bad hair day this time around.
