It's just that what they did looks so damned idiotic it just makes me want to slap somebody !
Not to mention they spent an entire fucking decade - I shit you not - trying to get Bass Pro to locate a store smack dab in the middle of their "historic district". Yeah... they surely had giant sporting good stores complete with rock-climbing walls inside 'em on Buffalo's waterfront back in the 1800s. Then, when a local House of Recidivists member finally stepped up and threatened to get federal funds withdrawn from the whole grand "Canalside" scheme unless the local politicos told "Ass Pro" to shit or get off the pot, the amazing, colossal investment that got folks thronging to the site was moving a concert venue from a downtown square there, putting up a snack shack, some Adirondack chairs, and a big sandbox for kids to play in. Now, none of these people were likely from further out of town that the 'burbs - but who the hell cares ? Their money's still bloody green !
Friggin' suits and their goddam bourgeois horsehit "big ideas"... ...I bet they only clung to the plan like drug addicts because all their goddam palms were being greased like friggin' mad !
