What's the difference in a B-36 for the Aviation Museum and the Trinity River Vision? About $906.5 million...of course that doesn't include all the budget tricks, that aren't included in the final numbers.
What happens when those claiming they can get the federal dollars for the Trinity River Vision backslide? WHO pays then? Or will the project be flushed down the toilet? Reminds us of the Dallas Morning News admitting the politicians misled them on their Trinity River Project. Really? Even the media can't trust a politician? Or is the media taking a cue from the politicians and just covering their butt?
Landslide Clyde gives you the scoop. Don't miss it, YOU can't afford to. Sounds like there is more to come. WE can't wait. And WE appreciate the shout out!
As I scanned the web site www.startelegraph.blogspot.com I was humored by a photo of Congresswoman Kay Granger holding a T-shirt saying “cover your butt”. She should know, I guess. While she pontificates about property values, her son JD is busy with the TRV Authority getting the Tarrant Regional Water District to relieve some people of their property altogether. It’s all about flood control, of course, but if it wasn’t that she’d say it was in the interest of national defense. You’ve got to get up early to beat a Congresswoman to the draw.
Now, years later, after Mayor Mike Moncrief’s task force to create an aviation and space museum has completed the legwork and determined the viability of same, suddenly we can’t raise the money. Say what? The museum consultant (Lord Group) found the potential donors and said it could be done.
So who are the backsliders, the potential donors or the museum board? Aviation has been the biggest mover of our economy, greater than cattle, greater than oil, even greater than prostitution, which flourished into the 90s.
