That's a nice anecdote, but the example is of a bar that the neighbourhood supported continuing to be a bar- hardly a major development. What's the second example? And I'm interested to know which specific neighbourhoods you feel NIMBYism "rules the day"? In most cases people have valid concerns about developments in their community, much like the concerns you've outlined in your article. It's frustrating to see people play a double standard when it comes to that definition, especially the people who seem to derisively bandy it about the most.
