ATLANTA: "Scary weekend in the ATL w/ Dragon Con on parade." - CNN's John Mcafee, August 30. It's the one place that zombies, monsters, princesses, wizards and hobbits can exist in harmony-- Dragon Con. Or, as it's known in Atlanta-- the best damn people watching you'll ever see. The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Convention hosted its largest crowds ever this year. Dragon Con attendees often say there is a sense of camaraderie between this community of self proclaimed "nerds and geeks."
