|it might be a little early to depict the Foss site as an innocent kitty from Japan. I mean, just to play devil's advocate: Could we be trading the devil we know for the devil we don't?
(note: devil is too strong a word, but the concept required use of it.)

|hello kitty might grow up to be an evil fatcat just like Murano, but why don't we give it a chance? Two Fatcats fighting each other is a win for 'the small people' as they say.|

|It would be so ironic if it turned out the Murano was owned by a group of Chinese investors desended from the originally expelled Tacoma chinese and the Foss site was owned by a bunch of racist old white people and RRs cartoon was instrumental in advancing their cause.|

|sorry to burst your twisted bubble fredo, Murano is owned by a Portland millionaire with a hankering for deeply discounted bi-centennial pavilion properties (also has a knack for using union goons as corporate hatchet men... but that's more your territory). |
Will city give away the Bicentennial Pavilion?

|Hmmm... Two fat cats fighting it out. Would that make Tacoma their litter box? Ugh.|
