    I too wondered if the gentleman was high while writing this. (Psst - get an objective friend to proofread this stuff before publishing it eh?)

    During Colonial Times, Yellow Fever Epidemic sufferers were sent to Tybee Island to the "lazaretto" or "sick houses" to "air out" as they termed it. When Tybee Island heard that Ireland, Boston and Savannah had cancelled their parades, they were like, "Hold my green beer."

    I was behind two fire trucks that were prevented from making it to the fire for at least 10 minutes because of the train on those tracks. Bad timing but really bad area planning. Once The Eastern Wharf is done, people think rush hour traffic going east is an issue now or with a train or God forbid with emergency needs? It will cause all of the streets on Savannah's east side to bottleneck as drivers use Wheaton, Gwinnett, Henry, Goebel, Pennsylvania and just about every other like they do most days to avoid the Eastern Wharf area, those tracks and that part of East President going islands directions. All of this was predictable and avoidable and made the fire seem more of an omen to accommodate over reaching design or possibly under reaching to accommodate the vision of it's developers.

    Excellent article and so nice to feel like we're reading real investigative journalism in a Savannah paper again instead of advernews. Rare thing in print or online these days who'd think? Keep it up!

    20%? Tony Thomas called it accurately as did Van Johnson in their statements. Lee Adler rolling over in his grave. And to think but a handful of years ago they tied up a couple in The Georgia Supreme Court over some unapproved Johnny Smith ironwork details on a Jones Street house after they put 5.5 million into renovating a nearly condemned house! And the couple lost and left town! Yet this developer gets to whack 80%? Abysmal failure! Historic Savannah Foundation needs to widen its net and it's priorities straightened. Not next week or next month but now! Why are we even having this conversation after so much structural loss? We've been betrayed folks. By apathy, by evasion, by the system. Just all around betrayed. Its time for new leadership!
