    Evil Developers from Hell

    How about Donald Trump?

    or does anyone else remember evil developer "Alonzo Hawk" from Disney's "Herbie the Lovebug" movie franchise?

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Hmmm....

    Was Ricardo Maltoban a developer in one of the Naked Gun movies? "You forget my dear, I spent 8 years as a contractor".....when asked why he did it

    Checking http://us.imdb.com/

    Maister (Herbie Rides Again, 1974),
    The Irish One, (Mr. Teague)
    The One (Vincent Ludwig; The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!, 1988)
    are all correct.

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    How about Lyle Lanley (sp?) the smooth talking mono rail developer from the Simpsons "Marge and the monorail".

    Easy one for me-the Mr. Bluth (the father) in Arrested Development. Heck, most of the family, except for Micheal Bluth, the "Good Son."

    Tom Hanks in "You've Got Mail"; mega bookstores. As a former bookstore owner, I could feel Meg's angst...

    The "Goonie House" sold a few years back for around $100k. My wife talked me out of making an offer on it. Darn it!!

    Mike Brady was a fine architect. Greg was a bad courier.

    I think the monorail guy from the Simpsons also tops my list. Homer says, " we call this one bitey". - d'oh!
