Re: We need a new airport!!!

I think part of the problem here is that this is government we're talking about. They do growth projections and build models and then do studies based on those models, and by the time the projections and models and studies are all finished, reality has happened and some of the flaws in the models an...

Re: Politics

Is it just me or does it appear suspiciously as though white American hegemony has made a pact with the Russian devil to suicide bomb the whole fucking thing if they can't keep it for themselves? I'm sure that's dramatically oversimplified, and, well, dramatic, but my gut thinks the whole thing smel...

Re: Politics

I don't really have any skin in this argument, but it seems almost comically obvious that restrictions on behavior (which is to say, laws) don't exist with an eye to stopping those behaviors, they exist to establish a framework within which people who do things the government doesn't want them to do...

Re: Politics

I'm sure this is not what you're advocating, but the line between what I think you are advocating and a situation where immigrants are "welcomed" into "compassion camps" and "allowed" to perform slave labor to earn citizenship seems to me to be a lot narrower than you seem to think.

This sort of architecture just isn't appealing to me. A lot of excess expenditure that does little to make the building more beautiful and arguably makes it worse, just for the sake of grabbing attention.
I imagine the architect protesting, "But this one goes to eleven..."

Re: Electric Park Neighborhood (East Bottoms)

Heard a bit of a piece on KCUR about it this morning. Sounded fairly promising. Sad to be losing Local Pig--seems like they really (alongside Knuckleheads) spearheaded a lot of the positives happening in the area.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Take this whole thing back five years and you'll see me arguing that we probably shouldn't spend something like a billion dollars or more so that the airport / airlines can make more money. I was eventually persuaded that I was being silly and we really needed it. Now I'm pretty sure I was more or l...
