Thank you Ben, for this.

To this day I still reference O'Malleys starbucks comment:
http://www.beaumonde.net/weblog/archives/starbucks.html

as exemplifying the eternally flawed economic politics in this city.
Always looking for validation from outside corporations. Desperate and willing to sell our city short.
Completely overlooking the fact that there is no track record of boxed shopping centers and the like doing anything for our city in the history of.. ever.
Failing to acknowledge the hard work and perseverance of the people who actually HAVE effected change surely but slowly, neighborhood by neighborhood.
It's all come from within and always will unless our blind politicians continue to figuratively AND literally bulldoze the city's history and the efforts of its people in order to put down a welcome mat for corporate exploitation.

Well said, Kara. Totally agree!
