Whatever you call it the redevelopment project that is centered on the old Wonder Bread bakery on Monroe between Downtown and the Medical District is moving with a building permit this week for what developer Gary Prosterman and his team call the Cadillac Building … because it was once a Cadillac dealership.

54. Gorillas in the Living Room -

IMPROVING THE VIEW. There are very large gorillas in our living room.

It seems these things are never seen when such a sight would spoil the vision at hand – except, of course, by those who see the reality of unpleasant things.

Avoided at all costs by those charged with promoting civic accomplishment – except by those who measure the cost of unpleasant things.

70. Marchers Mark 50th Anniversary of Start of 1968 Sanitation Strike -

The signs are now iconic. “I Am A Man” signs from the 1968 sanitation workers strike are museum pieces, even collectibles.

77. The Day After -

There is perhaps no greater scrutiny that a brand faces than during the biggest U.S. sporting event of the year.

82. Last Word: Shutdown Over?, Glen Farms Plans and Billy Richmond - Wing Guru -

The federal government shutdown for many of us outside the Beltway amounted to a message on a website saying the agency we were looking up was closed Monday.

It’s an issue that there has been plenty of local discussion about

84. The Value Of Unstructured Free Time -

I want to dedicate a column to the next generation. For me, this means addressing Uncle Leo and Ellery, my youngest son and grandson, respectively. May they have the space to explore in the vast treasures of childhood and lose sense of time while playing. There seems to be an unconscious conspiracy against people having free time to relax, create and simply enjoy life.
