Now I'm going out to mow my own lawn and pull some weeds on hands and knees. I wonder how many elite Court House moderates and developers do that?
UPDATE: Kay Brooks says that good government advocates are "nuts."
She also takes some shots at HGI President Stacy Mosley:
I understand they took a chance on that part of town but also ensured, as best they could, that their children would attend 'high-performing Hillsboro cluster' schools. Would they have taken that same chance if the Hillsboro Cluster hadn't been available? No one really believes they would have. Likely what they'll do is what the East Nashville GooGoos did, opt out of the neighborhood school and create an enhanced option or design school. These 'urban pioneers' shouldn't pat themselves on the back for their support of public schools when they've done that.NashPo's blog took their own shots at Stacy wanting it "her way" this morning in Gentrification Is Not Like Burger King.
