More options, more employment, more taxes paid locally. A glass half empty kind guy, Mort? Were you expecting an organic tofu restaurant, since it's likely to do so well in Pleasanton?
Really, can we just be grateful that businesses want to locate here, as opposed to other east bay communities that they are fleeing from?

Yes, I'm with Steve. I like the antiseptic look as it makes me feel even further alienated from the riff-raff we see in other cities. Of course we've got our own cross to bear regarding the low income housing that's coming in. I wish we could just pull the plug on that one and let them all drain out of the swamp.
