"Greg Roof Day" (Free Sunday Parking Downtown) lives on.

Sure Kevin, what you don't know won't hurt you. But Dolph has to see this as his publisher went to print three days ago with the 101 ways we love it here as if he were taking up the banner of residency and then the next day he 'resigns'? And Dolph doesn't think he owes an explanation to th…

Omri Shafran, Omri Shafran, where have I heard that name before? Oh yea, back at the peak of the boom years, actually at the begining of the decline, he picked up a lot of properties from Joe Murphy that I think later on he had to default on. Apparently not all, he must have kept the choice …
