Scammed says of One King West: "The management gets paid, the housekeeping, the utilities, the employees...."

I don't see a problem with that. That's great news!

Scammed then says: "...the only one not getting paid are the investors who put their suites into the "pool". They are locked into an unworkable contract. They pay all the condo fees, utilities, and mortgage payments, and they get whatever pittance is left at the end of each month, after everyone else is paid first."

Yeah, so what? If you live in a condo you pay fees, utilities and make mortgage payments. What's the problem? Only the greedy would find disappointment while earning enough of a living to afford the luxurious accommodations of such a stunning edifice, even with just a glimmer of profit potential.

Scammed continues to whine: "The hotel is doing well, the rooms are renting, just the owners aren't seeing fair returns."

Horse Hockey on the fair returns! Few who pay a mortgage or own anything, are seeing fair returns today. It's okay to peek through the shutters once in awhile to see what's going on outside the business modeled box. For the bitterly scammed their house is merely a suite, the humble make their houses into home sweet homes. Try not to be such an ungrateful wussy in MMIX. Be thankful you have a roof over your head, Russia doesn't supply your gas and you don't live in the Gaza strip.

In Harry's second point he states: "Mass transportation around the world is still Medieval ... do we have anything better than large steel boxes on rails? Even though they are a little 'Buck Rogers' now, [light rail vehicles] are still big steel boxes on rails. That's ridiculous. There's got to be a better way."

All I can say is be careful of the derogatory "steel" talk Mr. Stinson. If anyone is being "Buck Rogery" IT is you. This is Steeltown, the mighty men and women who built this city wield iron tools and without them you won't even erect a news stand or push a wiener wagon around Jackson Square.

In Trey's own words: "Asked if he still wants to build a signature [Buck Rogers] tower, Stinson answered, 'Absolutely!' though he said his approach [fast-paced run-slide] has changed as he has learned more about the community [slushy sidewalks]."
