    Hi everyone. I'm new to the world of planning, and am really excited to get my feet wet in urban development. I just got hired at a Dallas, TX firm - any advice?

    You could have always faked it. FYI - I'm not really at the "Quahog Institute for the Criminally Insane".

    Well, there was this one time... at planning camp....

    What can I say about Downtown Kelly Brown that isn't already in on a police blotter?

    Oh - and Kelly should know me well enough to know that I drink Diet Pepsi, not Coke.

    um, actually, i didn't pass out in the stadium, but outside under a parked car, and then later at the planning building.

    and isn't the diet pepsi machine calling you this morning?
