No parking in NLR

Posted By on Wed, Jul 25, 2007 at 7:49 PM

I had the same thought earlier, but the hustling Matilda in NLR got there firstest with the mostest. It makes NO SENSE WHATEVER to move music events from NLR's Riverfront Park, with the great LR skyline view, down to the po' part of the river several hundred yards east. People won't go. It won't be so much fun. The events won't be so successful. But that's what city fathers have decreed.

Why? So a handful of soreheads will be happy that musical  events have moved down to where music can bedevil the unwashed poor folks along Washington Avenue and environs, rather than the new class of snooty swells in ARGENTA and the new ballyard. (Except, of course, that the better class of folks attracted by Riverfest will still be allowed access to prime turf.)

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
