In this bit of "news" we find that it's not over til the fat lady sings - again. This reminds me of an old theater joke about encores. The opera finishes and the audience stands and applauds. Someone in the balcony shouts, "encore". The singer obliges and again he shouts "encore". Well, this continues ad nauseum and finally the singer says, "I just can't do it one more time". The guy in the balcony shouts down, "You'll do it until you get it right!"

From the news:

"K&D Chief Executive Doug Price has said the company will make a proper offer Wednesday. The company wants to build a $200 million development with offices, retail and condos.

Seven other groups bought bid packages that detail the county's sale conditions, including the Richard E. Jacobs Group and Carnegie Management and Development Corp. of Westlake.

Rustom Khouri, president and chief executive officer of Carnegie Management and Development, said the company has considered razing most of the buildings, including the Ameritrust Tower, to make way for 600,000 square feet of office space."

What is pictured above represents the amazing ability of the guy who will "decide today" if he will bid to buy and raze the Breuer Tower. Of course, he could go for some retail instead of the office space he says he has in mind. If so the corner of East Ninth and Euclid could look something like this:

Yes, you guessed it. I am feeling quite ill.
