Today's News - August 22, 2002

First things first…our thanks to all who sent notes of congrats for ANN making PLANetizen's Top 50 list! We've lost another talent: interior and furniture designer Paul Tuttle. The woman in charge of the WTC memorial answers questions. The future of San Jose's fire-ravaged Santana Row, now priced at $750 million, is up in the air (and foul play is not ruled out). Downtown Washington, DC is hoping to become a Mecca of culture and nightlife. South London streetscapes are given artistic life. An architect practically lives for baseball. In Australia, paying a corrupt piper gets the job done. Atlanta has three (very wealthy) angels…and a bit more.
