H&H >> Although I don't know Highwater, s/he and I often agree on many things, and we differ on some. The great thing is neither of us ever refer to votes/numbers, only to ideas.

You seemed to take issue with my critique of RTH's comment popularity voting system. You then said that YOU focus on ideas and not numbers or votes. If that's true, how do you explain these comments...

Have a look ... what do you expect when we're only putting up $60 million of our own money (Hamilton taxpayers that is) as part our commitment to the Games?

OK, I get the Devil's advocate caveat.

1. I agree, we need to seek
2. We have never had a signed agreement with... majority of Council that voted 7 times for the WH, not just Fred... for me to be objective, because I voted for him,

From your own words, it appears you DO like to talk about numbers (number of dollars) and voting.

Don't get me wrong, I think you may have something with NOT talking about numbers and votes. But in that scenario, that would have to include not talking about money or voting, which means not talking about politics or money.

That means we can talk about LRT, but not about funding. We can talk about two way streets, but not about wasting money on RHVP. We can talk about bike lanes, but not about gas prices or peak oil. We can talk about people, but not democracy. In other words, we can talk about ideas, but not the tools we think bring these ideas to life (money, political power).

You may be on to something.
