    You know, usually I would (Let the liberal rants begin…), but if they are truly going into what seem like pretty depressed areas, then that’s not so bad. The one across the river could be more southern to really get a good bite, I think that would make it a home run for them. That said, it’s a bold move. I think you and I can agree tho that we don’t want the city giving away all the future tax revenue with grants and other economic incentives to locate here – and assuming they have to abide by all DC employment laws without a waiver, this could be good. Would like to see any economic impact studies, has to be a motivator like MCI center, Columbia Heights Target and the new Yes! on Penn Ave across the river.
