Don't blame the BDDC as much as we all should blame the reckless politicians (Bristol Democrats) who started this whole debacle by purchasing the mall in the first place (for an inflated price).

They (the Bristol GOP) are up to their old trick of being inept and insignificant which is a reflection of the leaders they choose.

They're in outer space. Where else? Or as you say, they're like a monkey trying to make love to a football.

This was not a debacle when it all started back in 2003. The economy was in fine shape, and everybody in Bristol was calling for City Hall to step in because the absentee landlord owner was running Centre Mall into the ground. It was the right move at the time.

this mall was on the market for 3 million the city paid 5 million. Whos pockets got filled they both belong in jail. But the politicans proteck each other. Its not hard to trace and one of these guys gets a disabilty pension on top of it.
