    Jump the shark

    I am sure most are familiar with the website Jumptheshark.com. Some of us at lunch were thinking about the crazy ideas we hear about to fix towns, cbd's etc. and thought these were simiar to Jumping the shark. I am curious if anyone else has thought about these jump the shark plans in this light.

    Like, downtown jumped the shark when they ripped out Main Street and replaced it with a pedestrian mall?
