You can read his comments (every day on almost every story) on the TulsaWorld.com website. He posts under the name "Webmeister".

They tolerate his anti-semitic sentiments?

Sorry for jumping in late...but I thought this quote in the TW article http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/article.aspx?subjectid=11&articleid=20091016_11_0_hrimgs447975&archive=yes was unintentionally ironic:

“That location is going to be a happening place,” he said. “When you have thousands of people right there for an event, it’s really a captive audience.

And the time is right for the TDA to play a role in the revitalization of downtown.”

What role were they playing before? Why is now suddenly the right time?

Jeez, the time for empire building and monopoly board games ended a long time ago.

oh, and huzzah for something maybe probably finally happening on this parcel. This development has the potential to snowball into a lot of movement in the CBD, and it is certainly exciting...as soon as they break ground.

As soon as they are far enough along they can't call the project off.   Wink

Any updates to give on this project?  I know it's only been a couple of months.  I was just bumping around on Google maps and noticed the absolute BARREN land sitting directly east of the BOK Center.  Between the "Towerview" block and the BOK Autobank, that's pretty damned disgusting.

They are still trying to get through all of TDA's processes and approvals. Another poster can tell you, there is no limit to the amount of paperwork they want.

Is the TDA having seller's remorse?

Would the TDA move faster if the development was shouted from the rooftops?  Why can't someone with recognized power lean on these folk?

Edited to say: I'd try my powers but my nifty red tights have been deemed too revealing.

You have to complete a sale before you can have seller's remorse.

Well then they've had very few opportunities.
