Thomas Wheatley

An Atlanta native who spent nearly 12 lost years in the suburban wilderness, Thomas is an award-winning Creative Loafing staff writer who covers transportation, the environment, urban development and state and local politics. A graduate of the University of Georgia and former New Yorker, he enjoys crossword puzzles and C-SPAN. He has an intense fear of spiders, clowns and old black-and-white movies in which men court women. Prior to joining CL, he was a staff writer at a weekly newspaper in north Fulton County and Flagpole, Athens, Ga.’s, altweekly. He is not this Thomas Wheatley.

Thomas' must-read articles include: Tap water wears a bow tie when it’s put in a bottle and sold, Sober, Beltline a TAD off track but not derailed, and The 19th Annual Golden Sleaze Awards.
