As you know, I was off Friday to take care of personal business. So, I didn't blog any response to Duane Hagadone's big plans for the waterfront. I still need to catch up on reading his snoozepaper and ours about all the facts. My first reaction? I'm not rejecting his plans out of hand. But I am rejecting his need to get this done yesterday. He's asking for a major concession from the city. And city fathers and mothers should take their time studying the ramifications of his request. After all, he's basically asking to change a traffic pattern that we've had for decades -- and hand over invaluable waterfront property. This needs to be studied. Big time. And I don't think that can be done by on The Duane's time schedule. I've had a number of responses from readers that I'll be blogging today. Stay tuned.
