Put a Condom on the Condo Project

One day soon when we are reaping the benefits of global warming, i.e. getting rid of the snow, and actually having pleasant weather, I plan to take a bike trip up to 49th and Donges Road to give everyone a salute. So look for me.  I believe that you have done is admirable.  A developer has tried to come in, four times to put a condo project, where one is not wanted.  And the neighbors had said so, four times.  How many votes does it take?  And of course the way that the vote would take place would be unfair because if the developer got the one yes vote he is looking for, he would go ahead with his project.  At this point, he should be required to win five yes votes for a majority of the votes cast to go ahead with the project.

Spend Your Way to Prosperity

There seems to be a confluence of ideas that are not adding up when it comes to evaluating the economic stimulus package coming out of Washington.  It seems that we are in a recession already.  Although the very definition of a recession would not be available for at least five months.  We would need two quarters of negative growth in the GDP.  However economists evaluating the economic situation have concluded that we wouldn't be going into a recession because of too much credit, overspending, and general poor money management. We're headed to recession for a different reason.
