Planning Magazine

Trees die for smart growth
Pages of text yammer on
My eyes glaze over

Academic plans
From a few “progressive” towns
Not close to my planet

Let’s face it: Were not
Calling the shots, making plans.
Where is relevance?

Suggested topics:
Dealing with difficult folks,
NIMBY psychology

Curious alter-egos

No faces to names

Reagan's cool to me,

But surely you don't look like

The fortieth Prez?

We had lived in sin
No wait for us before vows

Planderella's Lament

Her fancy is great
But do not reciprocate
If you have a wife

Misleading her gets
No thong viewing for you, but
A kick in the grits

foreign affairs

we reach out with smiles
"foreign accents are wanted"
don't question our Prez

it's rough at the top
we must make the tough choices
elsewhere heads will roll

we have all the toys
and we're not afraid to use them
since they're all children

Religion and Politics

Thick skins are required
To ask a pointed question
And hear a response

Please, question our Prez
But don't be offended when
Answered with passion

It shouldn't surprise
Here, it's called "Freedom of Speech"
It's rough-and-tumble

drug house problems isn't zoning

i told this lady
you can't have a gravel drive
she got mad at me

she complained about
all the drug houses near hers
why isn't that fixed?

Zoning Department
doesn't enforce drug houses
police are supposed to.

So fix your problem
and then i'll leave you alone
i'll tell cops of drugs

Dog Days of August

No Council Meetings
In this eighth month of the year
Big sigh of relief

Progress Delayed

Life in our office...

Comp. Plan inertia
Where the hell did my boss go?
Time to bug Danie!
