    Well as a person who considers this city his hometown, this is something to be proud of but also shows that a lot still has to be done to eradicate poverty in our midst...

    Yet again i couldnt agree with you more . . .
    The USA is broke they just cannot admit it for the sake of the whole world.
    Greece will never stay in the Euro they are too far into debt.
    Spain will fold, Italy and Portugal will do the same.
    London is 10x over budget for the Olympics . . and probably broke . . .
    And yet i read, the pesos will be back at 45 to the dollar and 80 to the pound by Xmas . . .
    WHY ?
    Whats going to happen between now and then come on give me a break !!!!
    The Chinese big money men are all taking all their money from China and buying large parts of Euro, and any other country they can buy into, at what ever cost . .

    Any how back to topic, you only have to look around to see Duma is getting bigger and 'better' every month . . Hope SM starts soon, Robinsons is getting tedious !!
