Great articles!
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Great list of articles.  The number 1 definitely seems to sum up the overall sentiment.

Jacksonville's potential is gigantic!

There is an interesting paradox in the numbers - They speak to our souls.

#25 is all about how we have buried our historic city - heritage - culture - EVERYTHING under the dirt.

#1 is all about how we all wish we had our historic city - heritage - culture - EVERYTHING that is now under the dirt.

DAMN! FLASHBACKS...
Being in the wrong waiting room at Union Terminal because some nut didn't think my skin had a color!
Driving on the railroad tracks in LaVilla
Playing on the freight deck of the Atlantic and East Coast Terminal Station
Going to the top floor of many buildings that are no longer there.
Walking along the rotting wharfs and docks, all the old, old ships, some sunk at the dock in downtown.
Playing PIRATE on the same ships
Running like hell from the security guard.
Those slippery blue glazed brick streets on the hill downtown
Visiting the FLORIDA-HAVANA STEAMSHIP where the Strand sits today
First battle with I.N.S. in the old Post Office downtown.
Eating Milligan Burgers
Petersons 5 and 10
The 70 Naval Air
The old streetcar bodies scattered all around town.

Okay, I'll stop now that I've depressed myself into a tall SOCO.

Those were all great stories, and I am thankful for them.  I think one article should be added.  The article outlining a proposed expansion of the skyway was easily my favorite of the year.  Thanks for everything you do, Ennis.
