re: Mayor Cooks His Own Goose I tend to agree -- but Portland seems to provide a counter-example (see my story << Rollin' on the River
Portland muni wireless buildout has gone smoothly, for a change >> this morning).

Do you think they're just fooling themselves in the Emerald City?

re: Mayor Cooks His Own Goose There are enough valid arguments from the numbers of test equipment which are vastly different than the marketing numbers and those in the lab.

The driving force behind these projects are politicians that believe the hype and feel the pressure to announce something as to not look as if they are not keeping up with the Jones's.

From the combined reality/engineering/financial standpoint, the projects are not feasible - Although I wish this were not the case.

re: Mayor Cooks His Own Goose Now that makes sense. :)

re: Mayor Cooks His Own Goose Nope. Just FUD trying to discredit someone that is on the opposite side of an issue. Happens when all other seemingly valid arguments are exhausted.

re: Mayor Cooks His Own Goose And the relevance of this to anything wireless is?

re: Mayor Cooks His Own Goose You'll find that people are more forgiving than we give them credit for. He's done well in S.F. and people like him. This will blow over as if nothing happened.

re: Mayor Cooks His Own Goose Hmm...

I think it was the fact that he slept with his best friends wife that will be his demise. People make mistakes all the time...happens. Our society is one of redemption and forgiveness. But, doing it to your buddy or trusted confidant is unforgivable in many folks' eyes. Betrayal of deep trust.

re: Mayor Cooks His Own Goose re: "...his potential career at the state and national level may be cooked."

Rudy Giuliani's relationship with Judith Nathan while he was still married to Donna Hanover hasn't hurt his chances at a run for President. In fact, Giuliani told the press he was leaving his wife, before he even told Hanover.

What will likely hurt Gavin Newsom on a national level is his support for gay marriage.
