Legacy Building - the "crown jewel" in downtown Fayetteville?

Posted By on Tue, Feb 12, 2008 at 10:24 AM

Watching local news last night - why do I torture myself so? - and heard  the Legacy Building described as the “crown jewel” of downtown Fayetteville.

“Huh?” I said? Not quite as eloquent as “crown jewel,” perhaps, but it seemed an appropriate response at the time.

Where on earth did the folks at Channel 29 get the idea that the Legacy Building was anybody’s idea of downtown Fayetteville’s “crown jewel”?

From the Legacy Building's website, of course!


The site also says that the Legacy Building is “already a tremendous success.”

Well, thank God they didn’t recite that line, anyway.

Next time I send out a press release I think I’ll mention my blood ties to the ruling family in Latveria . . .


Quote of the Day

We do have a zeal for laughter in most situations, give or take a dentist. - Joseph Heller


Speaking of which . . .

Anybody know of a good dentist? I’m probably looking for an oral surgeon, who will just put me under while the dental work is being done. Now that I can finally afford it, it’s time for the dental drill.

These dentists with the gas? They say things like, “Please don’t scream, Mr. Drake, you’ll upset the other patients.”

You think I’m kidding, don’t you?

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
