    I’m anxiously awaiting Abramson to update us on the progress of Museum Plaza and Capital Plaza.

    Give hime time. It took Jerry 5 terms to squeeze in one term’s worth of accomplishments.

    But he smiled at the right people though, so it’s all good.

    I just wish somebody would take his oversized name off the airport terminal so I’m not in such a pissed-off mood when I head out on vacation.
    Better than the pictures, I guess.
