Amazon was going to build > 4 million square feet of space, with at least 25,000 jobs, possibly up to 40,000. Crowing about 335,000 sq.ft and 1,500 jobs isn't warranted IMO.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
