I've compared Larry O'Brien to George W. Bush before, if only because he did it first.
And here I go again. This time, it has to do with the long-anticipated results to the Nanos poll evaluating public opinion on the Lansdowne Live proposal. As fellow blogger David Reevely says, you can read pretty much anything into this poll.
However, one thing this poll puts to rest is O'Brien's assertions that Lansdowne Live has widspread support from the "silent majority". Using the Bush analogy, O'Brien was saying of himself and the Lansdowne Live people that "we would be greeted as liberators," and the Nanos poll shows that success at Lansdowne takes a heck of a lot more work than that.
I'll be at the Rally for a public solution to Lansdowne Park at City Hall (Marion Dewar Plaza) at noon next Friday, November 13th. Hope you will too.
