Re: “Pogue Fado says so long

The Pogue is a dive. If not in the same "class" as the likes of Oasis, it certainly wasn't anywhere I wanted to go to drink much less eat. Although, I did once have a very long dinner with a small group including one of the staff ID physicians. That was a weird day. Otherwise I've only ever been there when very drunk.

Re: “Pie in the Skye

Well, having listened to Wright's Massey lectures numerous times (I even own the audio versions and the illustrated companion book!), I can't say I understand what relevance his "progress traps" are to Skye Halifax. Wright's essential argument is that we must modify our resource extraction and consumption patterns to emphasize long-term stewardship as opposed to short-term gain. What does this have to do with intensification of population in downtown Halifax? If anything, projects like Skye Halifax - even if only 24 stories instead of 48 - serve Wright's argument precisely.

For my part, I would prefer new residential developments be somewhat smaller - say 20 stories or so maximum - and that they be spread around downtown as much as possible, with ground-level retail and townhouses. But we have to tolerate Fenwick here in the South End as it stands - downtown seems the right place to build anything as big or bigger.
