Open Thread

There’s been a lot of big news this week, from the major TIF for Unum at CitySquare to the Tea Party(or was it T.E.A Party), to a dour budget, to the state saying we could be facing more budget cuts.

We’re going to leave this post wide open to get your thoughts on the week, and what it means for the city financially going forward.

Do we have a shot of making it through the next couple years intact? Or is there some drastic action you think will save us?

The comments are open.
