  1. Who needs this yuppie stuff. REtail/office? You'll never meet a working Ballard stiff on one of those. Only yuppies. I miss Ballard.

  2. You'd rather they tore the old building down?
    The old building is going to be made useful again. IMO, that's a good thing.
    And it's not just going to be office space. Check out the plans.

  3. What rhetoric? I was just stating the opinion that it's nice to have an old Ballard building made useful again. I think it's the first time I've said that, so I'm not sure what you're so tired of.

  4. In the second picture, it appears to be a rather pleasant day, and yet we have a Marry Poppins in the bottom left hand corner with her umbrella open and dancing a jig. Artistic license?
