Weekend Open Thread + Crane picture

You've got to admit, that's a serious crane. I'm not sure what they're lifting, but apparently something needs to be put on top of the MidAmerican building.

I'll be out of town today, as I'm representing the QC area at a small get together in Des Moines with some of the folks from AbsoluteDSM.com. The people on that site seem to be a lot more excited about some of things happening in Davenport than a lot of Davenport residents are...

I won't be all the way out of touch, since I think the bar we're eating at has wireless internet, and I'll have my laptop. So don't get too rowdy while the moderator is away.

Also, GO IOWA!
(I saw some OSU fans skulking around
downtown yesterday, so watch out)

I always this frequent-posting guy named "anonymous" was a shady character, but I didn't know he was an Ohio fan.

All the pieces are fitting together now...

How were you selected to be the Davenport Delegate to the Des Moines meeting QCI? How many people were in the pool of possibilities that you were selected from? Was it Malin, the Mayor, or D1 that chose you to this delegate position?

If the city sent you, then it cost the taxpayers for travel and lodging. Hope we got our monies worth.

Ha ha, I think you guys are overestimating the importance of this event.

It was just a get-together of people interested in Iowa development issues who post on AbsoluteDSM.

If these people like Davenport as well as you said, then you should have been an ambassador for the city and brought the summit here. They could have stayed at the Radison, or the hotel where the cop just shot the drug dealers across from the QCTimes, or stayed at the IOC hotel, where the dealers were cooking meth. You spent all your money in Des Moines, where we could have gotton into the pockets of all your summit buddies. Think Davenport next time QCI.

Most vistors to Davenport stay at our world famous, all-inclusive resort. New accommodations, meals included, and community showers. Save the Des Moines folks some money recomend they stay at the Homeless Hilton.

What a bunch of backward simpletons there are here. This was a group of regular people who post on absolutedsm.com for those that still dont understand it's like a glorified chat room. Sometimes, I wonder how some of you people figured out how to work this here "fancy internet" inorder to post. Yeah your stormwater tax money paid for his trip. And to pay for his hotel D1 had to fire a city worker.

Sometimes I wish all the bitchers would just move out of Davenport. They'd complain if they were hung with a new rope! What a bunch of whiney cry babies. I've lived in alot of places, and it's the same old whining everywhere you go. Just miserable, negative people everywhere.

It does tend to wear me down after a while, and make me wonder why I bother sometimes. But I know that there are a lot of quiet folks out there that enjoy the occasional intelligent discussion that goes on around these blogs.

I just don't understand why some people spend time reading stuff they seem to hate, and then spend more time slamming on it.
