"I'm reminded of that saying that goes something like: You can't reason someone out of a position that they weren't reasoned into.   I'm fine with policy disagreements, but the whole "Obama's a Muslim" thing is…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to ida's discussion 'Trump as President? Meaning for Landscape Architects?'

Dave McCorquodale replied to J. Robert Wainner's discussion 'LA's searching for a JOB....a few suggestions.'
"Andrew, I think your point about profitability to the firm is perhaps the most important factor in an employer/employee relationship.  Many don't seem to grasp it, and who can blame them, I don't think it's emphasized enough in…"

"We live & die by oil down here in Texas. Simple as that. To be fair, there are other industries that shore things up, but when the oil guys are down & out, everyone feels it. I'm in favor of meaningful regulations, but want fewer of the…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to Sara Kirk's discussion 'stamping drawings'
"There are a couple neigborhoods around here that require an LA seal on residential landscape plans.  An installer I've worked with for about 10 years asks me to review and seal his planting plans occasionally.  I'll meet him on…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to Sara Shirley's discussion 'Pattern Books for Rezoning'
"With only a cursory look, "pattern books" appear to refer to a proprietary process from a specific firm that results in what looks a lot like a master planned community to me.  The specific methods and process they use is exclusive to…"
