.....Am I the only one who found it interesting that the N&R ran an editorial endorsing the city's plan to purchase Bill Agapion's Cedar Street property alngside a straight news story that says "demand for downtown living has not outstripped supply" ?

Granted, the N&R editorial does concede that the deal would play into Agapion's hands. Yeah, I'd say making somebody richer by $1.6 million plays into their hands. But I find it odd that the paper — which has done everything in its power to get rid of Agapion — would suddenly concede. I guess the fact that it's our tax dollars on the line makes the decision a little easier.

I vote no. This is one for the private sector to work out.
