As a follow-up to my Planning to plan the plan for the long range plan, I have What Planners mean when they say . . ., which contains such gems as:
|What the planner says
||What the planner thinks
||What the developer thinks
|“What do you think?”
||You don’t like it either, do you?
||We’re in trouble, they’re thinking.
|“Is the applicant here?”
||Can we talk, or do we have to be diplomatic?
||No! After spending all of this energy, to say nothing or a King’s ransom in fees, the applicant has decided to go to the racetrack where the odds are better.
