The Santa Monica City Council considering the Hines project is like a fat man with clogged arteries about to sit down for a feast of seven fruit pies. He knows he shouldn‚Äôt eat the pies because his arteries will now become hopelessly clogged, but he can‚Äôt stop himself. Yes, these are fruit pies and there is some minimal nutritious benefits, but that is totally out of balance with the damage the pies will do to his body.
Please, City Council, do not eat the pies. The clogged arteries the Hines project will bring to our city totally outweigh any benefits that will come with it. Reject the current proposal and vote for a smaller project.
