The Ashby Highrise

Over the past couple months, it's been amusing to watch the uproar over the tower of condos planned for the corner of Ashby and Bissonnet. It's made the national news and such. I've more or less lived in the neighborhood for 3 years, although I only rent the cheapest housing, so maybe I'm not much of a resident anyway. It's impressive that nearly every house in Southampton has those ugly anti-high rise lawn signs.

My position on the tower can best be described thus:

Nothing unites the very rich like keeping down the merely rich.
It's also amusing watching Bill White kowtow to his wealthy establishment constituents. Now that's something he's good at; too bad he doesn't spend as much time on the crime rate in southwest Houston.
