In Topic: Quiet But Not Absent

Thanks, John. For me it has less to do with having the discipline not to accidentally leak something, so much as it is the perception of inappropriate behavior or anything that would otherwise be considered a conflict by being an active participant on the forum. I enjoy having enough anonymity to actually say what I believe on here without having to hold back and be as diplomatic as I have to be when I'm not on here. So, with that in mind, I'll have to voluntarily bench myself. But, I will definitely be reading... and judging ;).

In Topic: What to see in Portland\Seattle

Well, as far as Portland is concerned, ride the streetcar from the university to the Pearl District. Grab some dinner on the east side of town. Go to Voodoo Donuts. Visit any number of their awesome bars/brewpubs. And definitely make a trip to Powell Bookstore.

If possible, make the drive from Portland to Seattle by going west through the forest and up the coast with a stop in Astoria for lunch and a quick visit to the beach.

Curious if the gas well on her property is contributing to any of the hold up on the extension of Hemphill-Lamar.

At what point does everybody realize this is never going to happen and just goes back to ignoring these people?


But Kevin! Their animated short garnered a 37% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes! These guys are legit!

She's land banking. The MO so far has been to take it right up to the point where the City is forced to do something and then toss out a few renderings and inquire about working with the TIF on redeveloping the property or pumping out the floodwater from the basement and buy some more time. She's a wealthy dallasite (hey... that rhymes with parasite... hmm...) who doesn't seem to care too much about the role of that building in Fort Worth's efforts to revitalize its downtown.
