The Circle of Life

19 Dec

As the Goldman/Fisher anti-Bass Pro lawsuit dies, the Peace Bridge and Casino litigations will be born, or reborn (as the case may be).

So goeth “development” in Buffalo.

    As we used to say in my native New Hamsha of something writ in stone: “Ayuh, by Jeesis!”

    The waterfront remains a hangout for deer, turkeys and foxes, who should be over at Tifft Farm, and the casino is….jeez, it’s kinda not a casino (big-ass quonset?) but it has slots, so it’s…ah, well, er…it’s. It’s depressing, at least, with the girders for the real thing standing around like so many gargantuan caltrops set to stop further progress.

    We must be buoyed by potential and hope. 

    It is written that our destiny is promise.

    Never give up there is always….

    Hope was in Pandora’s box for a reason. It is the worst of evils afflicting mankind, who would, despairing, simply off themselves and thus escape the inevitable further torment which keeps the gods and the rich laughing at our sufferings.

    Most folks think that hope is a good thing. They don’t live in Buffalo however. There’s only so much hope folks in WNY are willing to risk. A 55 year parade of White Elephants, beginning with the Skyway, relegates hope to the back burner for those who see what could be, but probably will never be on the waterfront. As long as groups who “study” such issues have money to stick in Brian Higgins’ pockets, we will only have studies and no development, good or bad. Since there has been only one Republican Mayor (60-64) since 1957, and the Common Council has been majority Republican since 57, I think the phrase “GET RID OF ALL REPUBLICANS” is a good one to go by. You have the government you asked for. Stop complaining about it.

    Uh, that would be the Common Council has been Democratic since 1957. a 53 year stranglehold on city government and the Mayor’s office. Next time I come home I expect to see long lines of bapchies in long coats and babushkas standing in line for day old Borscht. The city already looks like East Germany. Just add the local flavor.
