We wanted to say thanks to all of the NoLandGrab readers whose voracious appetite for news on Atlantic Yards keeps us feeding the beast.
And, while we're at it, here's the requisite list of what we are thankful for:
We're thankful that sportswriters like Michael O'Keeffe, Mike Lupica, and George Vecsey "get it," even though their newspapers' editorial boards don't.
We're thankful that even on a slow news day, there's one guy who's even more obsessed about Atlantic Yards than Atlantic Yards Reporter Norman Oder.
We're thankful that as much as Norman Oder dislikes having a FOIL request rejected, he really hates being lied to.
We're thankful that a handful of Americans are willing to risk nearly everything to make the U.S. Constitution worth the paper on which it's written.
We're thankful that the ESDC was in such a hurry to rubberstamp the Atlantic Yards project that they proved that the helter-skelter process is totally bogus (we're also thankful that they are willing to work on weekends).
We're thankful that Bruce Bender gets to talk from time to time.
We're thankful that in spite of his liberal do-gooder credentials, Frank Gehry occasionally tells us what he really thinks.
We're thankful that even white-glove civic organizations can't find anything in the project to love.
We're thankful that, the last time we checked, Bruce is #1.
