Re: “Gaps in the Eating Resume

No one has mentioned Brother Juniper's for breakfast. Long wait, but great food.

Re: “Drug Store War: The CVS Aftermath

"No, there is no improvment where the Walgreen's was originally planned, but there may be in the future. And who wouldn't want the best possible fit?"

I don't think of myself as short sighted, but how long is a community/city/neighbor supposed to wait for this "best possible fit" instead of settling for "pretty good fit"?

The city isn't static. Businesses will come in and thrive or fail. If one fails, a new or currently thriving business will replace it ... if we let them.

I've watched over the past ten years as Overton Square has turned into a vacant parking lot with Memphis Pizza Cafe at one end of a row of stylish, but rundown buildings. There's no foot trafic. There's no business. There's no appeal. And no development offers. (Loeb Properties is "working on it" but "[a]t this time we don't have a plan that works yet.")

How long is too long to wait?

Re: “Skatepark To Open Fall 2011 At Tobey Park

I think one of the great benefits of the skatepark is that it will cut down on the skating in streets and on sidewalks, where they are a hazard to not only themselves but also to the pedestrians and drivers.

Re: “Electronic Glitch Jeopardizes Completion of Countywide Voting

Jeff: I'm sorry if I misunderstood, but it seemed that you ("I've been warning about these Diebold machines for years.") and Packrat ("Yes indeed, these voting machines are completely trustworthy....") were looking to the machines for fault.

I apologize if I didn't understand.

Re: “Electronic Glitch Jeopardizes Completion of Countywide Voting

From the article, it doesn't appear to be an issue with the machines at all.

" ... apparently arising from the fact that early-voting records from a previous election were mistakenly loaded into the Election Commission’s electronic roll ..."

The machines can't be blamed if the humans running them don't give them the correct information.

Re: “Watermelon and Tomato Gazpacho

I know that convinience counts for a lot these days, but I would highly recommend forgetting about the food processor and doing it by hand.

Having made gazpacho for years (my favorite involves cucumbers and a small dose of minced radishes), I can vouch for the extremely tastier end product from a little more elbow grease.
