    Interesting and worrying how the Chronicle is running with the sinking tower story. Considering that the Chronicle and the tower’s developers are both part of the same political machine, it comes across to me like they are trying to whip the public into blaming the Transbay JPA so that these condo owners can rob it. They even lead with a big photo of the beleaguered billionaires looking forlornly out the window at the Transbay site.

    Problem is the tower had already sank a foot before anyone turned over a shoveful of dirt at that site, so the hypothesis is bullshit. That won’t keep these developers from trying to get paid out of the public’s money though.

    The first rule in tort law is “sue everybody” especially those with deep pockets.

    Could the cause of the sinking be due to the integrity of the landfill? There’s a lot of unstable material down there including scuttled wooden sailing ships.
