So, are we going to see Dennis O'Brien skulking up and down the median at the intersection of Oak Grove and El Camino, collecting donations while waving a sign stating, "The Derry Project needs your help; your contribution could mean the difference between my condos or a Foster's Freeze!" Seriously, is there no end to the greed? I pay taxes, and I don't feel the need to proffer up one dime for the sort of grant-cum-boondoggle being sought, shamelessly, by the O'Brien Group.

I haven't been able to understand the viability of the Derry project from the get-go. Who would want to live in a high-rise condo at that location? Traffic noise, train noise, air pollution -- what's the appeal?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
