“wires overhead, traffic tie-ups, are these guys smoking horse manure?” …

       and….

“this railplan will work when elephants fly!”

       and….

“with the bridges and traintracks… only efficient way to move people downtown is by helicopter!”

       and the ever popular….

“The DDA is smoking Crack!”

In Favor

“downtown will continue to be rebuilt, grow taller and attract even greater population”

      and….

“they have it all over Europe without all of this gloom and doom”


     Looks like the DDA will have it’s hands full to get this done…..
