Anyways, whats done is done. The City was poised to do a sweetheart deal for Katz. He moved the goal posts & reneged as usual. I just cant see what the City has done where anyone can rightfully call them "idiots" on any of this, or for the length of time it took.
I said the word idiots. that may be a bit harsh, but the city has to take some of the blame for a "negotiation" that has stretched for 5 years. It's not like the city had done a perfect job and the problems are all on Katz. there seems to be a few people with the city who are being obstinate for no good reason, or want to curry public favour by "standing up to the billionaire"
I think both sides are equally to blame for such a pathetic, drawn out process which still has no end in sight.
