Re: Omaha ALL OVER national media lately

AWESOME article about Omaha. I know this might irritate people in the forum, but the fact remains that many people on the west coast view places like Nebraska as bastions of uneducated and intolerant people who are archaic in their ways of thinking. I really hope this story gets traction and enlight...

Re: Missouri River Commons (Riverfront Development)

Why don't they clean the graffiti underneath the 480 bridge? I think that might draw more people to the riverfront.

While they're at it they should create an art contest for local artists to paint underneath the viaduct.
