Re: “A theater for Parcel 5?

To Reid: I would say Oscar Wilde was correct.

Henry Ford said "whether you think you can do something or think you cant, both answers are correct."
Have you ever heard of Earl Nightingale's the Strangest Secret? We become what we think.
Napoleon said "imagination rules the world"
I don't know how old you are, but all the things that are normal today were in Sci-fi movies and cartoons when I was a kid.

So in my mind anyway, yes, if they build it they WILL come.

Re: “Landmark Society shines a spotlight on porches, a roundhouse...

Front porches are very important. Although adding great aesthetics to a house, they also make it more inviting. In years past people used to sit on their front porch and greet their neighbors as they walked down the street.

Contrast that to the neighborhood(s) know as the "crescent". Ninety percent of the houses have had their front porches enclosed. I wonder if there was a way to bring the front porch back to these neighborhoods

Re: “A theater for Parcel 5?

Without optimism, what do we really have?

Where would we be now without optimism?

We have way more than our fair share of pessimists in Rochester.
What a terrible way to go through life.

What's in your glass? Is it half empty or half full?

If we can conceive it and believe it we can achieve it.

Re: “A theater for Parcel 5?

Again, what is the plan for the Rochester Metro? We can be whatever we want, so why are the community "leaders" so unwilling to forge a vision of our region that we all can rally around. Why do we have small potatoes discussion about this one theatre instead of, "is one new theatre enough?"

I realize that there are some things happening behind the scene, but can't we get a feel good campaign going in our area to boost everyone's spirit and positive vibes for our region.

We've got good bones
We've got a rich past
The future is up to us
Why in the world would we want anything less?

Re: “Where are the women?

Nothing against women. Sometimes the are the best for certain jobs.

How about the most qualified? I don't care if you are man, women or dog. Black, white or green. Why is everything in this paper first viewed through the race, gender, sexual persuasion, and of course democrat microscope?

Re: “Feedback 9/27

ELIZABETH OSTA , have you noticed that the city has been run for the past 50+ years by the same people? There's an election every few years to oust these employees that lie about fixing things and never do. I guess the residents are quite content being 3rd poorest city in the country.

Re: “Health care is a right. Why is that debatable?

Mark, I have no problem taking care of the truly needy. It would be cruel not to. Keep in mind that the people on the right side are much more charitable than the left.
