The only problem I have with this place is that it's close to work, and after I eat there I don't want anything but a nap. Greasy goodness...
As a pc resident, I was really excited about access to a heated saltwater filtered pool 2 blocks from my house. I find growing my own fruit, veggies and livestock a worthwhile investment into my health, as I would access to pool with out all the chemicals. I'm happy to pay a premium for those ammenities, given the opportunity. The fact is though, it's private. Its no different than any of the other residents in the circle with pools in their back yard, and only inviting they're friends. I had those worst time getting any response about questions I had from the get go, and I found it more than off putting, I felt it was rude. After some persistence, I asked the person I was emailing back and forh with if they would be playing any role in management, (and if so, in what capacity)because I was beginning to question if this was the kind of service I could anticipate, maybe I should spend my expendable income elsewhere. At last, I got one final email from a gentleman named brian, informing me that he was the owner and they hadn't hired management yet. I also believe he owns the mixon market (I could be wrong on that). They have coordinated a wide array of community events that Included a pretty diverse demographic. I am proud To be a part of a community that that embraces such a broad demographic. It's one of the things I love about PC. I called my sponsor, to ask what the deal is, and she informed me they haven't processed all of the applications. It's sounds more and more like growing pains, in particular management hasn't been handling things well yet. I hope mixon doesn't try to bring mt. P on this side and embraces the values we have here. In the meantime, unless anyone got a rejection letter, we may be jumping the gun. A blanket email about the delay in processing applications would have been helpful for pr on their end. Lets not jump the gun, I haven't seen any gates go up yet!

This issue struck a cord with a lot of different people from different backgrounds, and its interesting to see the different perspectives. I don't think this is a race issue as much as it is a social and cultural issue, and a complicated one at that. I have put a lot of thought into the issues at hand and I think these problems need to be addressed on a social and cultural level. Take a look at this group, who is actually doing something helpful about it. I think these guys deserve attention for this thoughtful, proactive approach. "How do you eat and elephant?
