"The letter is not racist, I have no idea whether the author is racist or not but you would not be able to say for certain simply by reading this letter that she is racist."
Actually, yes it is and yes she is.
Context is everything. To say, sarcastically, that people are willing to overlook this problem because the president is black makes it about race.
You don't have to be a card-carrying white supremacist to be a racist. All you have to do is: (1) believe that the black president "sold us a bill of goods" and (2) believe that the reason he'll get away with it because of his race. That's exactly what she does here.

Really, Indy? You gave space to this simple-minded racist letter?

Would it be possible to just wait for a year or two?
How can anyone really KNOW how Alma del Pueblo will impact traffic and parking at this point?
Starting construction on Arlington Village AFTER there's a chance to evaluate what's working or not would help avoid some very long lasting results of unintentionally poor design.
What's the urgency to fill up this block all at once?

Shouldn't the city make an assessment AFTER Alma del Pueblo is occupied? Maybe see what happens with the traffic patterns at that point before adding more? Theory only goes so far. Seems premature to approve a second major project before the first is done.

Something tells me folks wouldn't be lining up to be your neighbors, Holly.
I find this a much more attractive design than are found in many local tract homes. Lots of light, a clean bright design, and I'm guessing MUCH less construction noise than would come with a built-on-site house.

Dustin Hoffman did a lot of his character research at Devereaux. I've heard some good stories about that.

Botany, you claimed earlier that public sector employees were paid more. Your own chosen source shows this to be false for most categories. Sorry.

Um, Botany? That higher "compensation" includes the benefits. The wages are clearly NOT higher for those with a college degree.

Botany, private sector salaries are still higher than public sector salaries.
If you have sources that suggest otherwise, can you provide them?

How will it be used?
