My girlfriend's parents were in town this past weekend and so we all went to see the Monet exhibit, Orchid Mania then hit Severance for a piano concerto. Her Dad saw that dumb article in the morning and freaked out a little, but we had no parking problems at all. The article failed to mention that a national spokesman for Intelligent Design was speaking at Strosacker Saturday evening as well -- now THAT'S something to be worried about.
well, either they never got mine or yours was better... or, mine was just too saucy!
Date: Monday, February 26, 2007Time: 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.Complete Description:The Case community is invited to hear and speak with Dr. Michael J. Behe, who will be presenting “The Argument for Intelligent Design in Biology” on Monday, February 26th at Strosacker Auditorium from 7-9 pm. He is currently a Professor of Biology at Lehigh University and author of the New York Times bestseller, Darwin’s Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution which argues that due to the property of irreducible complexity, living systems at the molecular level are the result of a deliberate intelligent design.
This meeting took place last night and has been touched upon in the other University Circle thread. I'll post images this weekend and give more feedback from the meeting. For starters, there was lots of response from the public, both on the positive and negative side. The meeting ended with Councilwoman Sabra Pierce Scott insisting that we'll come back as many times as is necessary to get the best outcome to satisfy as many people as possible.
Anyone catch that story in the paper last week about the 17 yr old thief who was shot by the off-duty officer? There was a big to-do about it at the last council meeting. The newspaper article made it out to be that the black councilpeople were mad at the white councilpeople for not sticking up for them. Actually, that's not what happened at all. The truth is that the black councilpeople are all ticked off that Zack Reed keeps going to the Call & Post and saying that the black councilpeople are not sticking up for their constituents, etc. Strange how the PD (or, one reporter) twisted that one.
Update on the E. 120th Street (new Mayfield) station:The Planning & Development Committee reviewed Request for Proposal (RFP) candidates for architecture/engineering design services to relocate the East 120th Street Station about 1,000 feet to Mayfield Road and to reconstruct the transit track bridge.

(from the July 1 RTA News)Any sense how faithful to the Studio Techne plan (which I think is totally awesome) City Architecture's design will have to be (assuming City Arch is approved)? Do you know if Studio Techne threw its hat in the ring for the design contract or if they were ineligible because of there master planning contract?This project is high stakes!
