    Agreed that the months/years delay for these projects (except for the Mid which is pretty recent) is frustrating and concerning. The article didnít really allay concerns for those projects. Fingers...

    I'm pretty comfortable with the level of my "research." What I know about "those times" is derived from a lot more than just listening to Granddad and Uncle Tony complain about how the old...
  3. Yes, astonishingly, there are literally millions...

    Yes, astonishingly, there are literally millions of white folks around here that still think like this. Most pretty much think that if only all those black folks running things in Detroit weren't so...

    The Penobscot Building is still scuffling along. Occupancy is probably around 60% and Triple Properties is probably making a little profit because its capital investment upon purchase was so low. ...

    Yes but this time around arenít all those Mexican and Central American immigrants taking up all the high paying information technology jobs, displacing real Americans from our colleges and...

    A hotel on the JLA site would be a huge fail even with the proximity to the convention center. It seems unlikely that convention business alone could provide the necessary room-nights to make a...

    There was nothing B/S about the M/T article. It stated the facts. The various blockades culminating with the kinda/sorta traffic circle have been a huge urban planning fail. A complete waste of...

    Zacha, I think you're a little optimistic. From December through February, $550 would run the boiler(s) in that house for about a week, maybe a couple of days more. If you want to keep the place at...

    You're 100% correct because you undoubtedly know that this officer would never have pulled his "Taser a child from a moving vehicle" cowboy stunt if he was patrolling a neighborhood in Brighton.

    Russell Street deli has a long post on Facebook today that sheds some more light on their situation with their landlord, Mr. Nelson. ...
  12. If WSU harbors any possible dream of someday...

    If WSU harbors any possible dream of someday competing in Division I for basketball, 3000 seats for a new basketball arena seems a little small.
  13. Agree. Angelina was excellent. It's hard to...

    Agree. Angelina was excellent. It's hard to sustain the level that restaurant maintained for as long as it did. Kudos to the owners. Never had a bad meal there.
  14. The NYT article mostly sidesteps the question of...

    The NYT article mostly sidesteps the question of is there anything wrong happening in these racially changing neighborhoods. A complex question indeed. To the extent anyone might complain about the...

    The Freep's restaurant journalist adds a thoughtful and spot-on piece today. ...

    The HBO segment was a bit more in depth than I expected. Surprised that they got Mr. Walsh to sit down for an interview. I would like to hear what he had to say without HBO's editing. Sense that...

    Yes, the Bucks series was depressing. Supposedly they have assembled a trio of elite players to build a winning team around. And don't teams with any kind of a championship foundation elevate...

    The "Detroit RE Boom" is limited to a rather small total area of the city, even though it has gingerly expanded into areas once unthinkable, e.g., North End, Core City. Continued modest population...

    The Freep's Mr. Kurlyandchik is a fine restaurant and food journalist but this is a business dispute story and his reporting failed to get to the core of the issues. Did he ask Mr. Hall why he...

    It will be interesting to see whether the segment is just another example of out-of-town drive-by journalism that completely screws up the facts and the issues, or whether they actually get the...

    The Fairgrounds property had the potential to become a regional destination development, perhaps ultimately incorporating transit as well as creative mixed uses. The META Expo concept assembled by...

    Sorry, the Darko comment was intended as sarcasm. And yes, the SVG years were bad. Most of his draft picks did not pan out. Jury is still out on Luke Kennard but things do seem promising.

    This team is hard to understand. They appear to have talent but very little of the intangibles that winning teams always require to get in contention for championships. You would think individual...

    So because other regions already have functioning transit, the solution for people here who would like to enjoy the benefits of transit is to move to one of those regions? Folks who choose to stay...
