The Mess That Missouri Made
An economics blog I frequently visit scours the Internet for “Greenspan mess” sitings articles in which the words “Greenspan” and “mess” are mentioned in the same paragraph (this occurs much more frequently as of late).
I think we could do the same thing in Missouri with the words “developer” and “blight.”
On today’s list: O’Fallon.
“City officials late Thursday night were debating whether to declare blighted the site of a proposed eco-friendly housing development to allow a developer to receive a tax break over 20 years.”
Missouri newspapers should just hotkey this sentence. It could read something like this:
“[State, County, City] officials [insert time] were debating whether to declare blighted the site of [insert property or district here] to allow a developer to receive a tax break over [enter years here] years.”
