Ronnie, we hardly knew ye

I can only speak for myself, of course, but already I'm feeling a little glum that the Millionaire Maker, the Get-Rich-Quick Real Estate investment pro,the man who wanted to transform the failed mall site into a glorious renaissance center of waterfalls, pricey shops and period vendors, the Florida dreamer who saw a chance in Bristol to add to his growing empire of fishing resorts, oil wells and golf courses, has been given a big thumbs-down by the cold-hearted officials of the Bristol Downtown Development Corp., who not only failed to share his dream but, when they had a chance to leap aboard, opted not to dream, but perchance to sleep.
Ah, well, goodbye, Ron Legrand and your amazing vision for a transformative future. I trust that your many other ventures will prove more profitable than this little foray into the Mum City.
