And I was thinking this morning that I was going to ask if any of the alleged upcoming projects were here.... I see not.

Four months into 2009, and a huge list for the rest of the state.. what is the bigger story here that I'm missing?

That's what happens when the mayor supports a police force that abuses actors. Say what you will, but Cedric Glover blew it!
