Smart or Dumb?

Read the article about a neighborhood project that is happening right behind the theatre and then try to decide if this is a smart move or not. Personally I think anytime we go up against Mother Nature we have a tendency to lose bigtime. My friend Ted has told me of the days when he was a boy growing up in Greenwood when he would gather tadpoles from the creek that used to be where the Fred Meyer store is now. He doesn't think it's a good idea to build there. I don't either. I think there are better ways to revitalize the neighborhood than to make it look like the rest of Seattle. Perhaps it will sink and either the devil or China will get a new building.

It's a frickin' peat BOG!!! And do you really think that these are gonna stay apartments? Economy improves at all and they'll turn them into condos. And don't even think about any body from the middle class being able to afford them. And once the buildings start to sink (and they will) who's going to be left holding the bag?? Just because you think you can, doesn't mean you should.

Ok... rant's over now. Sorry, Marty. Marshall
