Morrissey's My Word Column
9:17 on a previous post commented, "Is there going to be comment on Brian Morrissey's use of the word 'tract' this morning?
9:17 was referring, I believe, to this commentary by our very own Brian Morrissey. I don't know that any commentary is needed as far as his use of the word tract is concerned. We went through the debate on the track vs. tract issue here some time ago.
As far as the commentary itself, I'd say he's pretty much right on. This is much along the line of what I said here not long ago after that Explore The Possibilities event held earlier on by CREG. Much, if not a lot, of what the CREG speakers proposed as possible uses for the Balloon Tract are actually incorporated into the Marina Center plan.
Sure, as Brian points out, one difference is Security National has a way to pay for their idea, and that's a big difference and a strong selling point.
A couple other points of contention can be accepted or dismissed, depending on one's point of view: Marina Center isn't another government project, as keeps being proposed by opponents. I think that's a good thing.
Then there's the big sticking point: Home Depot. Oh well. I don't have a problem with Home Depot, despite the fact I might never bother going there.
