speaking of the clev, funny it's just the opposite back there at FCE home base. FCE never gets slammed for not building a thing in downtown cleveland despite the property they control. that's because all the local politicians are firmly in FCE's pocket. hrrmmphh, and that would be the day eminent domain was ever used against them.

anyway, i don't think anything is going happen with atlantic yards in this economy, not even this crummy looking b-plan arena. the nets will probably long be in newark before FCE/ratner lifts a shovel. wouldn't surprise me.
