Pleasanton Weekly,

What is the purpose of posted an old story, from Friday, May 18, 2007?!

I think it's a test to see if people can read. BREAKING NEWS...the Titanic has sank, I repeat the Titanic has sank.

"Very Concerned" -- Do you really expect an answer to your question? My guess is either a technical SNAFU, or it's community division reporting that the Weekly is so noted for.

Actually, this usually happens when a poster comments on an article that doesn't have any comments. It doesn't seem to matter how old the article actually is. Notice the Janet's shout out has the same post time as the original article - 19 hours ago at the time of my post.

'They call it TOD--transit-oriented development" The tax paying public refers to it as a 'ghetto'.

It's a decoy...a way to divert thieves and enable them to hop on BART after their crime spree and return to Oakland for some culture.

Perhaps this will satisfy Brown & he will drop his plans to overturn the growth restriction measures voted in by the residents of Pleasanton- after all, he knows better then the people who actually live/work in this community, right? LOL

We need this! Enough with the suburban sprawl, ugly strip malls, and big box Walmart garbage. We need more walkable neighborhoods with access to public transportation. I'd like to see more TODs instead of Central Valley Bushville/Foreclosureville sprawl.

SteveP,

You said, "They call it TOD--transit-oriented development" The tax paying public refers to it as a 'ghetto'."

Oh I see, so if people don't live in a single-family tract stucco box like you, they live in a ghetto. I guess we should all hide in our tract homes and listen to Rush Limbaugh.
