Shooting from the lip

Mike Lupica, Daily News:

And isn't it interesting that every time they hold another press conference over there, the way they did this week, that everything possible is done to exclude Ratner's opposition?

And that everybody, starting with architect Frank Gehry, wants to talk about everything except the high-rises?

It's like talking about Manhattan and talking about everything except the real tall buildings.

This remains, in broad daylight, one of the great shell games in the history of real estate in New York City.

Only the people in the neighborhood look at this thing honestly.

But isn't that what politicians - honorable ones, anyay - are supposed to do?
