Tanks, brownstones, video poker machines and stunted theatrics.

It doesn't exactly qualify as John Galt stopping the engine of the world, but considering the dumbed-down circumstances of politics in the Open Air Museum, conspiring with the Wizard of Westside to hold up approval of the masterplan for a month just might qualify as the heaviest legislative lifting that Stave Price has done this term.

Price: I won’t hold up masterplan; Scribner Place phase two likely to see Nov. 2 council vote, by Daniel Suddeath (News and Tribune).

A few years hence, when the VFW proposes moving the tank, using its (by then) far-too-large-for-its-declining-membership parking lot, and building brownstones to capitalize on the downtown housing boom, should we say no, you cannot.

You wanted the tank to stay where it is, remember?

I'm going to give you credit. Surely it wasn't unintentional? For the council member most dedicated to staving off progress, an new appellation - "Stave" Price.

Thank you for reading closely. What I need now is an appellation for Pat McL.
