deja vu all over again,, another "Image Austin" study releas

I just sent this to KXAN, local NBC affiliate, about their article on : "Image Austin" , another in an endless series of studies on "Austin's future". If you search city mgr, asst. city mgr. offices, planning dept and HHS offices, city archives, you will find at least a dozen such studies stretching back 40 years. I used to work for the city. Every time, we got a new mayor, city mgr or asst. city mgr, a new study would be ordered. it would take 2 years, thousands of dollars, take up the time of many poor city staff and city contractors. IT would determine that we need more resources, some from (shudder) the private sector. That was, of course, the poison pill. The study would be put on the shelf, where it still resides to this day. Go look. i dare ya.
Hope you're not allergic to dust and redundancy! thanx!

..gezundheit!

An American election, cuz Americans are too thick to ever consider 3rd parties that would ever get the real reform needed.
