RG43.2 why does the left lead the crusade against URD?

It’s unusual for the left to lead against urban renewal districts? Liberals and progressives usually like urban renewal? But not here in Eugene. Why? Short answer: muscle memory and Sheilaism. Long answer: read on Friday.

One of these four ideas will be developed into a column on Wednesday to be published in The Register-Guard on Friday. I’m asking you to help me choose between them. Between now and the end of Tuesday, leave comments here or send me an e-mail if you’d rather be more private. Or, at the very least, RATE the idea (and the others) so I know which one people like best. No promises, though. This ain’t American Idol. But I will post an entry on Wednesday to say which one I’m choosing (and probably why.) I plan to do this each week — often by Friday, but always by Monday, so visit often and tell me which idea intrigues you the most. Thanks!
