Sounds like the old days of the DADA before the bridge construction shut everything down. I still remember our first DADA arts festival when about 1,000 people showed up and the police came and ticketed all the people parked between those pillars you're now adding mosaics to. LOL. Those were the days.
When I first read the negative comments about this article on Facebook, I thought it must have been a reaction to Rich Tosches' humor. I was a little dismayed to read that it was, in fact, an ignorant slam on city procedure. Newcomers indeed do not realize how quickly a storm can become a crisis in Colorado, especially in this city where drainage is abysmal to begin with, and developers built with reckless abandon on flood plains with the building department's sanction. Really, this article was just irresponsible and needs a follow-up that deals with the seriousness of the issue. As it stands, it simply makes the Indy look stupid. ~ Dani G.
What about Homegrown on Tejon, Mondays 10-1?
Any good deerhunter knows that meat from a stressed deer isn't good. The same holds true for cattle in modern slaughterhouses like those described in recent news. We've been eating that adrenalin-laden meat they are recalling for years. It's not a huge stretch of imagination to consider the possibility that aggression and violence in our schools and our society can be linked, in part, to our diets. It's enough to turn a person into a vegetarian! And maybe that kind of diet would be a good idea for schools and prisons. How about an article about kosher meats, where humane treatment and consideration for the animal is part of the certification process? That should be a standard nationwide.
