- A reader wrote to UU: "The benefits, I think, are very attractive," Ms. Shiller says. "It may even succeed, but it's not yet fully baked." Does this woman EVER think to wait until something might actually be "baked" before she starts funneling money to it? That, and: "It may even succeed" .... May? She's going to chuck $40-50M at a project that isn't baked, and who knows? It may even succeed? If you listen quietly, you may be able to hear my head explode over this one.
- Clarendon Park Neighborhood Association in an email to its members: "While many of us have been meeting with the proposed developers for this site, we have not given our blessing, and our meetings were not in place of larger community meetings they need to hold. CPNA welcomes your questions and concerns, as this has been all we have tried to portray to the developers. Thank you."
