Before anyone has a cow over this, there was a time when that side of downtown was dotted with car dealerships - some of which lost a lot of cars in the 1981 Memorial Day flood. Guess what creek they washed into...

My dad and I used to walk the creeks screening for coins and jewelry. I remember vividly walking across the hood of a car once that was in the middle of Waller Creek.

The environmental protection regulations for a project like this are going to be ever so much more strict than they would have been for a car dealership. It was events like that flood that helped create SOS, because at the time, no one cared about the issue.
In America, today, it's not that truth has lost, it's that political bias has been accepted as a legitimate answer to every issue one struggles with.
