    to start?

    this is all feeling vaguely

    Project For The Americas.

    It’s all coming home to roost.

    I know some Pawtucket Irish who’ll be pissed off.

    I know some five hundred a platers, too.

    Almost doesn’t matter anymore.

    Time for ideas of one’s own.

    No mention of the environmental impact. No mention of the cost of demolishing the old stadium. No mention of the maintainence costs if they build this new one. I’d love to see them renovate McCoy and find a better use for the Apex land.
