Graham: First off, thanks very much for your efforts and continuing focus on these developments. If we could somehow get you into the room as facilitator with all three parties, we'd surely have a shot at a win/win/win outcome. But to your point regarding the strong-arm tactics practiced by the university: the only reason they're trying it on is because they've seen it work. I know it's going back a long time, but we had a little controversy in the distant past over siting of a sports stadium. A minor-league sports franchise with no real alternatives threatened to take its oblong spheroid ball and go somewhere else but nowhere in particular. Council panicked and caved. So now we continue to pay a further price, as other prospective partners employ threats and ultimata as bargaining methods of choice.
