I am astounded that the Mayor is hindering APS efforts to sell these empty buildings, adding insult to injury as he refuses to pay the City's debt to our schools. A great city cannot happen without great schools, and it doesn't take a genius to grasp that. What is he thinking? Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face!
How does it feel to have almost everyone who knows anything about you think you are wasting the world's oxygen with your every breath? Imperiously demanding the right to pave vast swaths of the earth so you can afford to priss about on horsies with your flippy hairdo. What a pathetic life. What a shameful view of the world. How sad for your family and anyone else who has to put up with your nasty, selfish, obstinate,greedy horseshit. You may have strangled the last gasp from your own conscience by burying it under steaming piles of self-congratulatory egotism, but it's not hard for anybody else to see what you really are. Repent before you get run down by some rabid shopper speeding down an overburdened neighborhood street and find yourself in a hell that looks suspiciously like one of your own ugly "developments."
The Edgewood shopping district was not "reduced." It was put in damn near exactly as Fuqua wanted it, (though he was working at the time for Sembler Co). And yep, it is a nightmare to drive or walk through. Instead of even the pretext of a buffer it has ugly town-homes because ARC required more residential component, which is a nice romantic idea, but frankly just increased the already disgusting size and density. The problem in Edgewood was that a complete idiot was in charge of dealing with the development on behalf of the neighborhood, and he did EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE wrong. I am encouraged to see Glenwood having intelligent and organized neighborhood response and I hope you get better results. I am sad that Edgewood set such a bad precedent.
OK Me, this person has spoken up for the children at Coan. He has pointed out that they are being moved out of the way so a more affluent group of kids can come in to an empty school. a school that is big enough to accommodate all of the middle school overflow in addition to the current population. And you think pointing out that this situation, which doesn't even pass the smell test, is unfair, is somehow "playing the race card?" Do you have the foggiest idea what Christianity is about? Let me give you a hint - it's not about self righteously judging Nathan Dean. 'nother big surprise for ya, racism is not a card. it's a historical and present fact of life in America. wish it wasn't, but I'm not an idiot. I guess that's where we differ.
