RE: Where's the "pointe"?


Thank you.  When I read the article yesterday, I was interested in the
project until I got to the "e" at the end of the name.  It just reminded me
of the pretentious development names in Pullman like "Emerald Pointe".  I
say they should drop the goofey "e" and get on with the project.
