  • “The President’s doomsday scenarios are of his own choosing,” Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., argued in response to Cutter’s email. “The sequester will cut 2.3 percent, or $85 billion, from the massive $3.55 trillion the federal government is projected to spend this year alone. To put that percentage in perspective, we borrow that much money every 28 days. If the President can’t cut that much, he’ll never cut anything.”

  • One thing we always check for when coming into a new city, is construction cranes on the horizon. Lack of cranes on a city's horizon suggests complacency and lack of progress or movement. To the cranes at Project Emerald Skyline, welcome back, old friends! Photo taken Friday, June 19, 2015, from the Lincoln Tower. #progress #cityonthemove
