    Re: Skyscraper:

    What was the last city development that DIDN’T raise concerns about congestion?

    Isn’t that just part of the game? Design a building with 0 parking spaces and people will complain that residents will clog local streets with parked cars. Design a building with 1000 parking spaces and people will complain about all the traffic. There isn’t a number of parking spaces that wouldn’t result in someone complaining.

    It’s as I suspected, about half those “vintage” photos taken in and around the Morse station (those from the 80s) were familiar scenes to me. Well, I will just start telling people I’m not old, I’m vintage.

    (No apostrophe in “photos,” by the way. Sorry–once a language nut, always a language nut!)

  • Whoops! Thanks for catching the typo. As a token of my appreciation, I should send a copy of “Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation.”
