    Only in America will you build a town made for no inhabitants. They say we're wasteful and do everything big...well here you go. LOL.

    They can buy half of Detroit for that amount of money, build a wall around it, do their testing for 5 years, then open it up to inhabitants.

    Bizarre, just bizarre. Well, if they build it next to the Mexican border, it'll become a prime target for squatters, that's for sure.

    Not that i want to indulge their deluded ideas but, its possible that Pegasus, a company which has nothing to do with immigration, thought, maybe we could create a city near the Mexican border so that the folk that crossover can "squat" at this conveniently located city and then other companies can test their bio weapons on them. Absurd yes, but just following tom and em theme :)

    I like the name 'Ghost City' ........ now I wonder if some real ghosts would like to make it their home, that would be nice. I wonder where will they find the investors in these economic conditions though, as they sounds like "over-optimistic" aren't they?
