commented on Getting Tired of the Do-Ho Suh Dog Tag Jacket at SAM, Too?
You are mistaken about people being allowed to take the dog tags when the exhbit was first up. It was not permitted. It is true that people could walk on it at first, but the piece suffered tremendously and SAM had to change the rules.

"In addition the new space will offer something we’ve never been able to offer before—wheelchair access to all levels." Wahooo!! For those of us who have been shut out of readings at EBBS for years, this is great news!

I love plans that have as a key plank: "Seek additional Federal and State grants " Right--the money should start rolling in any minute now.

commented on Why Is Labor Supporting Joe Mallahan?
To which I'd add: the Labor folks who got to know McGinn during his Great Cities stint found him to be unciritical of any developer or project that he perceived as promoting density and transit, and flatly unreceptive to working class concerns.

It's not just that he hasn't reached out to unions (though to my knowledge, he's studiously avoided doing so).
It's that throughout his Great Cities days, he went out of his way to diss labor folks.
