Some were, others were unlicensed illegals driving stolen vehicles at high rates of speed because they don't care and this is a small sample of incidents. This has been going on in the southwest since the mid 80's and there was no outrage in the past.

People smugglers do suck. It's a good reason for more border security and opening up more immigration. But, I don't think the government can be blamed for crashes they had no part in. Which others were from high speed chases?

High speed chases in general are something that need to be stopped, especially in an era of cell phone tracking, facial recognition and license plate scanning.

The border patrol seems like they are more than a bit out of control lately, shooting a Mexican national recently that was standing in Mexico, killing an unarmed woman on our side of the border and then lying about the circumstances, running over a Native American man last week and just driving off. It doesn't seem like the current administration cares at all about the human beings they encounter near the border. That's wrong.

How many of these cases involve the border patrol chasing the vehicle at speeds over 100mph? Which should not be done by the border patrol, OHP, FBI or TPD.

That is the new site for Bill and Ruths which QT is buying/destroying at 15th and Lewis. It's a shame they destroyed those interesting Mid-century looking buildings but will be a good addition to have another restaurant in the Renaissance Neighborhood.

I'm upset about how they demolished the neat buildings at 15th and Delaware Ave, just to leave it an empty eye sore for 5+ years now...

Hopefully B&R is building out to the sidewalk/corner at 15th & Columbia.

I love the Mediterranean look when done well but you're right that one with the pool is pretty typical of when that look is attempted in the US. It is better than those others and better than a generic apartment complex, but certainly not a remarkable piece of architecture and I can see why many would dislike it.

This new building seems pretty well designed and will fit in with other new buildings. Not stunningly beautiful or remarkable, but very nice.

For better or worse it has become sort of a trademark of midtown architecture, which I assume ties back to Philbrook.  I honestly like the style and hope more of the infill around Utica Square looks similar.  Similar to the "white district" that formed around 35th & Peoria it can create a defining look for a particular area.

The original ITR also has good views. That will be an amazing rooftop location and they have a solid brand.

I wish the sushi place in that newer building at Peoria and BA would've survived. It had a great balcony with stunning view of downtown.

Zanmai.  It was good, not sure why they couldn't keep it open.  It's an event space now, I know someone that had a wedding reception there.

Just another one of Trump's lies - that he could somehow 'save' coal plants from shutting down, against all the laws of economics!   At least the utility companies are so stupid as the average Trump Minion who bought into that BS.   Especially given the fact that there are over 4 million jobs in true clean energy, with almost 800,000 of them in renewables like solar/wind.   Compared to only about 160,000 and shrinking in mining industry - mostly coal!

But hey, the odd colors in the Minions fantasy world could at least be entertaining to see for a few minutes...maybe.  If ya like delusional, drug-induced, coma nonsense.   Breadburner??   That would be one explanation for you!

Exactly.  Why I won't be going.

I'll probably try BA Brewing sometime this week.  Being in the Rose District it should be neat.  I've seen the interior photos and it looks really...what's the word...eclectic maybe?


I have been visiting out there for decades...since the 60's really...and have always liked that little building a lot for some reason.  It is in a sucky location, 20 ft from the train.  Is oddly shaped, and was an air conditioner place for a long, long, time, but it is very cool.  Can hardly wait to see the inside.

Just read Comey is now under IG investigation over handling of classified information. Everyone is now investigating everyone.


Good!  They all should be investigated!   Comey skated dangerously close to treason.
