Tall buildings with more of the same old and some green embroidery

Paul Goldberger, The New Yorker's architecture critic, spoke with Richard Cook. http://bit.ly/9U0zML VIDEO And I have to yawn.

They don't integrate pattern language with new design They see tall buildings and more of the same old with some green embroidery.

Wrapped in Whatever Garb of Whatever

Is this an ear of corn I do not know
I'm colorblind
My graphics are what they are

I think it may have been the blooming garb of spring

Lately I have been reduced to satirizing Sarah Palin

Shannyn Moore: Palin's Homer Moment: Celebrity Sarah Confronted by Citizen (WATCH): "What the Palin folks don't seem to understand is simple; if Fred Phelps gets to hold his hateful signs up at military funerals, Billy should be able to put Kathleen's 'WORST GOVERNOR EVER' banner on his building and not have a Palin goon tear it down." Lately I have been reduced to satirizing the Governor in an effort to keep Chris Matthews from successfully arguing that she is Presidential timber, but this story has nothing but truth. The governor has a big celebrity chip on her shoulder. I'm yawning.

When will we start a campaign around the millions of motor vehicle deaths and injuries? My guess the answer lies in the current economic crisis which extends to the outlandish expectation that we can and will afford the present economic bleeding inherent in car ownership and commuting and obsolete zoning.
