Blake is widely known in Birmingham for his adversarial stance regarding Mayor Richard Arrington. Some citizens have leapt to the conclusion that the MAPS issue is simply a quarrel between the "Arrington camp" and the "Blake camp." Others hesitate to take a position because of their distaste for both men and their sometimes childish conflicts.
However, neither Arrington nor Blake is among the "prime movers" on this issue. It is very important that each individual evaluate the MAPS proposal for himself or herself, without being distracted by personalities and hype!
Of course, these comments represent one individual's opinion - as does the whole web site. Meanwhile, if you want to share your opinion on MAPS, you have several options on the Internet.
And don't forget the tried-and-true "Letter to the Editor."
