Dan Coody: Cancel my subscription, sir!

Posted By on Wed, Oct 29, 2008 at 8:28 AM

Well, I’m sure that thousands of words will be written about the NWA Times and Dan Coody this morning. And, like others, I was pretty sure  - meaning 100% positive - that the paper would endorse the political train wreck that has become the Coody administration.

It’s sort of like Christmas, I suppose. I can still be surprised early in the morning.

Well, Dan still has Mike Masterson is his corner. And hey, Star Shopper hasn’t weighed in yet . . .

Eminent Domain and Renaissance Towers - Christmas comes early for John Nock and Richard Alexander?

Reading about the Off Street Parking Improvement District Board, and the upcoming November 17 discussion of using eminent domain to take the Big Dig away from John Nock and Richard Alexander, and turn the damn thing into a parking lot, you have to think that Nock and Alexander may actually be rubbing their hands together at the possibility.

They may cry crocodile tears in public, but behind closed doors they may well be jumping for joy. At least this way. The whole mess will be out of their hands, and they will be free to do their Jedi mind tricks on a whole new city council/administration, perhaps.
