I wonder how cheap the rents will be

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2007 at 12:08 PM

On paper, the Fayetteville Cultural Arts District sounds like a grand idea. And yet, given the current administration’s seeming fondness for pretty things (and pretty people?) over working class issues, there has already been some concern raised over one particular paragraph in the article in Monday’s Northwest Arkansas Times (“Much of downtown falls within planned arts district’):

“Codes and ordinances that support part of the district, such as those that would facilitate artist housing in the neighborhood areas, might be different than codes and ordinances in other parts of the Cultural Arts District . . .”

What does that mean, exactly?

You’re an artist, you’ll like living in a hovel.”

“Trust me, air conditioning and running water are so middle-class. First and last moth’s rent, please.”

I see that I can now go online and read the blogs of television characters, as well as have them send messages to my cell phone. While it is true that I enjoy reading blogs, and often refer to them when writing articles, I really don’t have much of a desire to read the blogs of fictional characters.

Unless - what if most, if not all, bloggers are actually fictional? What if I . . .

No, best not go there. That way madness lies, as Shakespeare once wrote. Truer words were never written.
