Why Does Hotel Murano Hate Tacoma?

Hotel Murano, however, is a big fan of the "Tacoma Method"

Normally I like to find multiple sources while researching Tacomics but I could only find mention of Hotel Murano's despicable spooky action at a distance on the Exit 133 blog which is surprising since I always suspected exit 133 to be a giant tool for the Hotel Murano (suppose the vicious egg sucking capitalist fat cats finally crossed a line, or maybe the perks were cut off who knows). One thing is for sure, The [Tacoma] News Tribune, Business Examiner, Tacoma Weekly, Weekly Volcano (if you count them as news) we're all silent as a well-digger's ass.  Yet, this story plot is an ancient one: Kill your competition as a baby before it even has a chance to threaten your tyrannical monopoly.    Frankly, I believe infanticide makes you look creepy and mediocre. Stay classy Hotel Murano. You scum!

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.

News Tribune: "Tacoma might have its own City Council to blame for killing the latest effort to create a hotel on the urban waterfront."

Gee, RR, maybe they just don't want this new business in their, um, neighborhood.  Sound familiar?
