    I can see how he knows what percentage of his business is drive-thru. I can see how he knows that 400 cars a day turn left into his business (maybe; did he stand out there and count?). I do NOT see...

    If I want to go to McDonalds, having to go a half a block to turn left safely at 18th won't stop me. In fact, I'm a hell of a lot likelier to do that than to go now. One could argue that the new...

    Nobody is mentioning safety. Not only will a median with turn lanes only at intersections make Cumberland more attractive, it makes it a whole lot safer. I currently refuse to make left turns on...

    I remember those times. I was a small town girl, and all the cultural offerings at UT were just amazing to me. I soaked up as many of them as I could.

    Good discussion, everyone. I agree with pretty much everything AC said.

    This is why I nearly went ballistic when the Dean of UT's College of Business said that its customers were the companies...

    Then it's true to the book. I like Pynchon, but I've tried to read this twice and failed. I think the problem is that I need to read it all in one sitting, if possible, to keep track of characters....

    More than one of us were asking Randy to lock the thread. Glad he did. Some folks on there were WAY over the line.

    I have him on ignore, so I am blissfully aware that he's trying to beat up on me. I'd prefer everybody else ignore him as well.
