Lightbulb ATTN: All Buffalo forumers

Hey everyone, I was looking over the Chicago thread here on SSC and see they are actually forming some kinda group. Now I have no idea what kinda organization they are gonna make, but perhaps we could form our own right here in Buffalo.

As for a name, I don't know, as for members, I don't know...but there are enough of us now to make something like this work.

As a whole we all have become a pretty good knowledge base, we have assets in Urban planning, engineering, traffic, photography and urban politics.

This being said, lets consider a group (an offical organization) for our Buffalo.

anyone?

"coup de Buffalo"...or the "Buffalo Revolutionaries"...idk...i like the idea of forming our own special interest group where we smear those that disagree with us, vote on only one issue, and expose those that don't conform to basic urban planning principles.

you know, with Buffalo Rising, SSC, SSP, Buffalo pundit and Elmwoodstrip.org, this could take off.

you know, here we have opinions and yes we all have them...it's kinda funny, yes we sometimes go at it.

If a group was formed, it would be likely that we would not just share our opinions with each other, but rather the outside...we could promote, endorse and push the urban living and preservation.

I don't know about liberal policies, but I do think the urban areas of WNY are in need of a kick in the jaw, some how, some way.

This sounds a lot like the existing New Millenium Group. Ours would have to have a different angle to set us apart... like, "We'll try not to be as arrogant as those other groups."
