Be clear about the changes

The choice of a word can make all the difference. If you happened to read The Sun on May 26th and read the sixth from the bottom page “Global Plan Change Notice”, you would have read that they are going to update the single family land use category and change its name to the residential area. It seems innocuous. Replace the word “update” with “remove” and you get a more accurate and precise description of what they plan to impose on the largely unsuspecting public.

I say “enforce” because no city commissioner has proposed ending the zoning of single family neighborhoods and none have used those words outside of closed doors and yet with four simple “yes’s” it will become the law irreversible of the country. I say “unsuspecting” because how many people do you think are actually reading this review?
