Hypnotized by '37,000 jobs'

Like moths to a flame, West Side residents are still being drawn to that number, 37,000 -- 37,000 -- 37,000 (jobs). It's like a big blinking neon sign.

Well, I have some other numbers to think about: 7.5 square miles; 4,800 acres; 141,000 vehicles in and out of Crows Landing a day; 14 million gallons of water a day; 1,000 truck trips in and out a day; $534 million to complete this project with zero guarantee it will provide any long-term jobs.
