Therefore if he has hopes that God will grant peace to the world it is because he also trusts that man, God's creature, is not basically evil: that there is in man a potentiality for peace and order which can be realized provided the right conditions are there. The Christian will do his part in creating these conditions by preferring love and trust to hate and suspiciousness. --'''Thomas Merton''' (Yes, this is an oblique comment on the ["Grace Valley Christian Center/Experiences"] page.)<br> + </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 15: </td> <td> Line 19: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ------<br> - ''2005-11-15 00:36:01'' [[nbsp]] thanks for the help, I am not going to lie, but I am not the best writer, but thanks. --["MichaelMolnar"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2005-11-15 01:35:37'' [[nbsp]] That is why I am a Econ major because money is easy --["MichaelMolnar"]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Users/AlexanderWoohttp://daviswiki.org/Users/AlexanderWoo2005-11-15 01:35:37MichaelMolnarComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Users/AlexanderWoo<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 17: </td> <td> Line 17: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2005-11-15 01:35:37'' [[nbsp]] That is why I am a Econ major because money is easy --["MichaelMolnar"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Users/AlexanderWoohttp://daviswiki.org/Users/AlexanderWoo2005-11-15 00:36:01MichaelMolnarComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Users/AlexanderWoo<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 15: </td> <td> Line 15: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2005-11-15 00:36:01'' [[nbsp]] thanks for the help, I am not going to lie, but I am not the best writer, but thanks. --["MichaelMolnar"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Users/AlexanderWoohttp://daviswiki.org/Users/AlexanderWoo2005-11-14 21:30:06AlexanderWoo <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Users/AlexanderWoo<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 11: </td> <td> Line 11: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ I occasionally have spurts of leaving cryptic comments on various topics on various pages (especially people's pages).

However, there are a number of problems with it. First, the area of downtown that you suggest should be 7 stories is all owned by (I'm guessing) hundreds of separate property owners. I can't imagine that there would be any public support for condemning those properties or taking them through eminent domain. And so you would just have to wait -- perhaps 30 years or more -- until they were for sale. And while most remained one-story buildings, those remaining residents would likely object to living next to a single 7 story building. I think it might be possible to do what you say on a block that has one owner, if you limit the new buildings to say 4 stories. But politically, I think your idea would be quite unpopular; and it might not provide the kind of housing that people in Davis really want to live in. --["RichRifkin"]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Users/AlexanderWoohttp://daviswiki.org/Users/AlexanderWoo2005-10-10 23:23:29RichRifkinComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Users/AlexanderWoo<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 12: </td> <td> Line 12: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2005-10-10 23:23:29'' [[nbsp]] Alexander, your solution would do what I asked.
