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!

http://www.thelegacybuilding.com/about2.htm

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 . . .

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?
