The Good, the Bad, the Ugly.
The Good - the peanut seems to be extremely successful, although it gets backed up at times.
The Bad - Zimbalist's financial model that he crafted seems to have missed the mark
The Ugly- Madison's work completed to date and the mounds of dirt on the site.

Merry Christmas and hopes for a Happy New Year !

Zimbalist's negotiating skills leave a lot to be desired. A while back you posted the WooSox lease. From my reading of the lease the WooSox took the City to school. It does not take much negotiating to give away the store.

One thing working in the City's favor is the housing boon that is occurring every where but how much housing would be needed to support the costs with the lower tax rate. The City needs to be careful that the boon does not become a bubble that bursts like it did before.
