Lawyers? Lawyers?? Damn Their Oily Hides!!!

Not sure how the Cometeer found it, but this is an interesting letter.

The more that people like Andrea C. Ferster and her client(s) stand up to local elected officials, their cut-rate legal opinions and their favored developers, the more chance this region (and InsolvenCity in particular) will have to recover.

The headline's inspiration, Montgomery Burns:
Mr. Burns: [watching employees on security camera] That’s right, keep eating . . . Little do you know you’re drawing ever closer to the poison donut! [cackles evilly] There is a poison one, isn’t there Smithers?
Smithers: Err . . . no, sir. I discussed this with our lawyers and . . . uh . . . they consider it murder.
Burns: Damn their oily hides!

Well, you got me scratching my head over where you got that Onorato campaign e-mail from a few posts back, that's for sure.

From the campaign, of course.

All I ever get from campaigns are calls interrupting dinner by asking for money. I never give them any, but they keep calling.

I'm all on board with the Ferster letter and preserving the arena and all, but I think there's some circular arguing, or thinking, or whatever going on here. NOT demolishing the Arena will permanently "delay and frustrate site redevelopment", at least as planned by SEA. Tearing it down might jeopardize federal funds for redeveloping the street grid, but it can still get done without federal money. So in the end, Ferster's argument falls flat and actually sounds a bit silly.

Silly? Ferster's clients propose a careful process rather than the customary rush to poor judgment, and indicate that there are not only adverse legal consequences to haste but also parties inclined to ensure that those consequences are enforced if the proper procedures are ignored. Sounds reasonable, effective and civic-minded.
