Half at N, Looking Southeast (see more)

Just a reminder that the first of two public meetings to update the public on the status of the search for a new Marine Barracks location is tomorrow night (Tuesday, Nov. 30), at Eastern Market's North Hall (7th and North Carolina, SE). It will begin with an open house at 5 pm, with informational displays and "experts" on hand to discuss the various aspects of the Community Integrated Master Plan (CIMP), aka the site search. Then, at 6:30 pm, "speakers representing the community of stakeholders will present their viewpoints, [...] followed by a facilitated discussion of community development involving all participants."
Here's the agenda, and the CIMP web site has plenty of other informational materials including a recent Process Update (which I wrote about last week), in which it's stated that "the Marine Corps has not settled on any specific site or concept" (despite rumors to the contrary), and that the concerns of the fans of the Virginia Avenue Park "have been heard loud and clear and addressed accordingly."
My previous entry also talks about the CLG Status Report handout (posted by Norm Metzger), which includes some "Art of the Do-Able" conceptual graphics (emphasis on conceptual) that show how either the 11th and M "Exxon" site or the 8th Street "Square 929/930" site could be developed in ways that would not touch the Virginia Avenue Park. There's also a similar graphic showing how the presence at the current BEQ site along Virginia east of 5th could be expanded without losing the soccer field, which would requiring the shifting of the planned Capper community center site.
If the comment threads on my posts anytime I mention the word "Marines" are any indication, it should be a festive gathering.

Subject: My sincere apologies to all JDLand readers and to JD.

I am truly sorry about my rant on JDLand. After I wrote about my support for Marine expansion into square 882, my rant about responses from Andrew were completely unjustified. I cannot read his mind and should not have questioned whether his research was biased.

I have given myself a timeout and time to reflect about my actions after thinking about a man who is an inspiration to me. After ticking off the executive assistant to a three star Admiral a couple of years ago, I talked with a gentleman who runs security at a couple of the buildings at the Navy Yard. Not only is he very smart, very capable, very confident, and very courteous, but he also has very thick skin. He never let ranting and insults by others get under his skin. He ALWAYS kept his cool. He took care of my situation when he realized what happened was not my fault. I also saw him deal very non-excitably in many other situations that he got caught up in ...even though those situations dealt with flag ranking military and SES DOD civilians (folks high up the food chain) who could be very irascible. I would say that he is in my top five list of people I have gotten to know fairly well who inspire me to be a better person. Also, he happens to be a former Marine.

Anyway, my getting into arguments with Andrew and MJM is something that this man would never do. Insults, accusations, nasty comments would simply roll off his back and he would continue the good work he always does. I got ticked off at people who were not even insulting me. I again apologize to everyone here (especially Andrew) and know that I was too hot tempered, too thin skinned, and too easily provoked. These are definitely traits to be ashamed of.


JD says: (12/1/10 12:53 PM)
Bradley, I appreciate your taking the time to write this. I'm all for a spirited discussion of issues, as long as the discussions are based on the facts at hand (which separates JDLand from a lot of blogs ;-) ) and don't veer off into personal attacks. The barracks back-and-forth has been teetering on the edge, and I hope everyone will take a few deep breaths.

(Especially after the meeting last night, which seemed to have been drained of a lot of the angst of previous sessions. I'll write about that more when I do my post about the meeting--am waiting for the documents from it to be posted on the CIMP web site)



Andrew in DC says: (12/1/10 3:40 PM)
@Bradley

No sweat, man. No apology necessary, but I appreciate the gesture. Don't beat yourself up over it - it's really easy to put/project tone on something that you read online. I had half a mind to go knock on your door, introduce myself and ask you if you wanted to get a beer just to simmer things out.

I look forward to our next discussion.



MJM says: (12/1/10 4:30 PM)
Same thing was thinking the beer option too. Everyone is gonna get fired up from time to time - especially with a new hood and the people who have a stake in it (some more so than others who have to pay the CapRvrFrnt BID taxes - that is another topic to get fired up about).

But last night's meeting I thought went well - btw - if you were there I asked the question about Dog-ma.


V says: (12/2/10 8:20 AM)
Now my idea for a Thunderdome-like settlement just seems silly.


BradleyComar says: (12/3/10 5:28 AM)
Thank you all for your understanding.
