Louder than a bomb

Wow, some company is throwing its hat into the Atlantic Railyards ring. Some company called Extell put in a bid on the property. It's a much smaller proposal than Ratner's arena deal and won't take any private property. Also the buildings won't blot out the sky like Ratner's 60-story towers (although at 28 stories apiece the Extell buildings will still be pretty imposing for that area).

From the picture it appears there will be a lot of green space, which should be a good thing. Then again, the layout in The Projects also has a lot of 'green' space, although nobody would argue it really increases quality of life for the residents. Anyway I'm glad there's some competition for the space.

Meanwhile, the explosions in London are super scary, I hope they figure out exactly who's responsible. Was it a reaction to the G8 summit? Why didn't they attack Edinburgh then? My friends James and Martha recently relocated to central London. I was looking up their house and saw it was just a few blocks from where the bombs went off. They didn't get hurt but they're now 0 for 2 when it comes to picking cities to live in that get targeted by terrorists. Perhaps they'll move to Jerusalem next.

Blood and guff ooze out and stain

The back yard is full of: mulberries, rainwater, mosquitoes ...
