Polluter pays!

Haitians demand food

Supposedly, the UN occupation and the 2006 election had allowed Haitians to forget that its democratically elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, had been overthrown in a violent coup. The massive protest over food prices has shattered this facade.

The Liars’ Club, Pt. II

It would be a liability to accelerate the transfer of a federal Superfund site from the National Priority List with the data gaps that exist in the characterization of this property. The city admits it cannot clean up the Shipyard’s radiation-contaminated sites, which comprise the bulk of Parcels D and E. Parcel F, the Shipyard’s underwater region, has not been adequately studied.

“Dr. King wants the same thing I want: freedom.” – Malcolm X

Lennar’s Prop G: Vision or Mirage?

Prop G is not about development – it’s about land banking for the future. Lennar will sell off its affordable housing obligations to nonprofits, then hold out to maximize its return.
