Caleb Hannan reports that the Mayor's (and now Metro Council's) proposed Downtown convention center is likely to shed its grass chapeau. I guess the Green Ribbon Mayor no longer needs to hold down the environmentalist/conservation wing of his supporters to move ahead with the development. (Besides, where else would they go?)
And read more from Caleb on the incestuous relationship between Metro Council, MDHA (about whom I raised red flags yesterday), and PR firm McNeely, Pigott, & Fox. The perquisites between politicians, the shadow government authority, and private industry seem to be on full flow.
