Dear Madame Zoltar
Hello, my sweets! How are you? I'm getting back into my routine after my adventures on Mora. What a nightmare! Señor Zanza and Junior were frantic when they realized that I was gone and they had no idea where. They filed a missing person report and contacted all of my friends. I had just disappeared. They were very happy upon my return.
I've heard nothing from the Morans since I placed the Zoltar Curse on them. That should keep them busy for awhile. They'll be rebuilding their world for decades. Ha-ha! Who's on top now? Don't mess with Mother Zoltar! Did I tell you that their chlorophyll is purple? Their grass and shrubs and most trees are varying shades of purple. It's quite disturbing, though I don't know why. You'd think that after a month I would get used to it. But I never did. . .
So, what's been going on in my absence? More crime committed and people dying because of criminal actions. The same old same old. Racine, where did you go wrong? I think it was the reign of our two criminal mayors, Becker and Dickert. They gutted this city. Today it looks like Foxconn may "save" Racine and surrounding communities, but I doubt it. All these epic plans are made to turn old Racine manufacturing buildings into apartments and condos for the expected influx of Foxconn workers, but few have bought anything yet. The Ajax project and the YMCA project are both stalled. Same for @NorthBeach, Probably the same for a few others. People aren't going to invest their money until they're sure that there is or will be a market here. Talk is one thing; money is another.
Will Foxconn "save" us? Does the Pope poop in the woods? No, of course not. Foxconn is going up much more slowly than most people anticipated. It will be years before it's effect is felt here. if ever. Being next to the Interstate, workers can commute in from as far away as Milwaukee and Chicago. While some of Racine's "suburbs" have become bedroom communities, Racine itself will never be one. The city is too coarse and demanding. No one wants to live here. They do it because they have to. Foxconn workers are likely to look elsewhere for lodging. Perhaps in housing recently built near the site. That would make more sense.
It will be awhile, if ever, before Racine's housing stock is fully occupied. Till then, all bets are off. I can tell you your fortune, but its much more difficult with a city. There's 70,000 fortunes out there. How they do or don't act in unison as a city is hard to predict.
Much easier to predict is my love for you, my readers. You are the heart and soul of this blog. I'm so grateful to have you. Believe in me and I'll believe in you.
I'm going to take off now. I still have a lot of neglected clients to visit. I love you all. Don't forget to treat each other with kindness and respect. God is love. Let's spread Him around. ________________________ Please donate: paypal.me/jgmazelisIf you don't like PayPal, send me a note at email@example.com and I'll send you my street address so you can send a check or money order.
