I've ever-so-slightly redesigned the Near Southeast home page, adding a directory of current and future projects. It's information that's always been available on the interior pages of the site, but now with so many projects either started or about to start, I think it's become necessary to have an easy-to-browse list of them... Soon I also plan to categorize the blog entries so that I can display them on their appropriate project pages. Sounds like a good August project. UPDATE: Did I say August? I meant today. You'll now see blog entries pertaining to the individual projects at the bottom of my project/photo pages. This also meant moving most of my photo pages from static .html files to Cold Fusion files, so apologies if your bookmarks have now gone south.

I keep trying to ignore any of the angst surrounding the acquisition of the land for the new baseball stadium, but I can't--so I'll just be really slow about it, instead! The Post reported on Saturday that a third lawsuit has been filed by landowners at the stadium site seeking to prevent the city from seizing their properties. The article also says that bids for the properties will now begin going out to owners in mid-August, with hopes that the city will control all 14 acres by the end of the year. But the Washington Times reported on Monday that some of the groups bidding to buy the Nats are skeptical that the city will be able to get all its ducks in a row in time for a March, 2008 opening of the new stadium. Quote: "There's just so much to do down there. There's no way it's done for Opening Day 2008," another Nationals bidder said. "You have land acquisition issues, environmental remediation issues, political issues, design issues. It's going to be great when it's done, but these projects are always so complex that it's shortsighted to simply assume it will be done [in 2008]."
