Craig and his wonderful list

onion ringsThe good thing about Craigslist: it's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations. The bad thing about Craigslist: it's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations.

Good or bad, we'll let you decide...

This guy's offering a "coupon" for a "free foot massage."

"My first goal is to find a very financially secure lonely old women (preferably on a respirator) to take care of me."

This person's hoping you'll speak to him en fran├žais.

Ladies, this guy wants "some onion rings to dip in that shake."

This purported encounter doesn't sound awkward. At all.

She and her purple coat were "a refreshing sight to behold in this sea of black/ brown/ grey pants and flats."

"Your gauges are bigger than mine." Coffee talk or odd pickup line?

He doesn't know if she has "a boyfriend/husband/girlfriend/kick-ass cat," but he does know she has an "amazing" voice.

She drove his Hyundai -- and it was love.

Is there anything more sad than a lonely duck?

The "My first goal is to find a very financially secure lonely old women (preferably on a respirator) to take care of me" one made me laugh really hard (how wrong is that?). It can't be real though. I mean, that's GOT to be a joke.

@Summer: It's gotta be. Sometimes I think fake Craigslist items are becoming some sort of art form.

... as somebody who is interested in developing downtown and possibly starting a business there, but isn't Columbia development, what message do those tax breaks send to me? The smaller players who will do the type of infill, mixed use development that we really need get discouraged when they see that only the big guys get any support from the city and that the playing field is tilted against them ...
