I am not suggesting being rude. But I am suggesting holding people accountable for their bad decisions.

One of the reasons I really liked the article is because he didn't decide to go nuclear and attack his neighbors. That usually is the problem w/such debates...paint the other as evil and the communication halts to a standstill.

Herb made good points but parts of it really isn't as "anti-restaurant" as the title suggests. Cosi would be great for that area. But while I'm sure "fight" might have played into their decision, I also wonder whether "bad business" did as well. They've closed several Cosi's in the area and at some point I thought I remember them saying that it was going to be bought or was already.

Then there's the fact that existing policy allows for grandfathering..not to mention landlords hoaring properties.

There seems to be a confluence of factors as a reason why more restaurants aren't open in Cleveland Park than simply being "anti-restaurant." We now understand that the majority of residents are in favor of removing the cap. The problem is, as in nearly all instances of anti'ism, that the minority speaks for the majority.
