  1. Nashville International Airport

    There wouldn't have been the impetus to build a new terminal right then. However, I expect given the growth, we still probably would've ended up with a new terminal by 2000 or so.
  2. America's Ugliest Confederate Statue

    The dude has a right to build a statue on his property, even if we almost all agree that it is pretty ghastly. The subject doesn't particularly bother me (he is a nuanced character, and frankly if we applied the PC standards of today against people of the past, no one would get a statue), but the rendition itself is amateurish and cartoonish and is more of an insult to its subject. Of course, saying the man has rights to put up a statue on his property doesn't similarly mean all have to be subjected to viewing it. If the state wishes to replant trees/high shrubbery, etc. on their side of the property line, that's their call. See, using the Constitution, you can find a way to respect the rights of both sides.
  3. Margaritaville Hotel,12 stories, 145 ft., 215 rooms

    My parents took me there as a kid in the '70s. I thought it was a Mexican village.
  4. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    ^Bennie-Dillon. Where the rooftop a/c units are as big as skyscrapers.
  5. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    No, no. It's OK. Just post them over in the Coffee House in a new thread. I'd like to see the photos, as would most of the rest of us.
  6. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    This would look perfect here...
  7. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    Yes, please. We'd love to see them. Perhaps under Coffee House and call it "London Photos."
  8. More Accolades for Nashville

    How many places in America DON'T have crime-infested housing projects ?
  9. ^Ugh, I swear they gotta change the name of that hotel. "Fieldhouse Jones" ? It sounds like the name of slave quarters on a plantation.
  10. Margaritaville Hotel,12 stories, 145 ft., 215 rooms

    Yeah, but there is the problem that this is a very ugly building.
  11. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I'll vote against it for a much different reason: we don't need to be jacking up taxes to pay for a boondoggle. But, yes, terrorism is a serious concern.
  12. JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors - U/C

    I'd be happy if it could not just dwarf the Westin, but eat it.
