More McMain Street

This article in the Enquirer is a hose job. No one with an opposing view was quoted; no critical points were even sited. Where is Nick Spencer's quote? Did McCauley even call him? This is a PR job for Cranley and Luken. Sources indicated that the ordinance hiring John Elkington for $100,000 is looking like it will fail. Cranely's plan may not even get 4 votes. I wonder if Elkington is positioning his firm to collect far more money from the develpment deals, not from this useless study. Why doesn't he just develop locations on his own? If he can make money on it, then the building permits should not be a bid deal to pencil whip through council.

This article just pushing the same talking points as before. We don't need recycled ideas from other cities. How many Planet Hollywoods are now dust? Lets also look at who goes to Main Street? Young professionals go to Main Street. Where do older folks go? They go to bed at 11:00 PM. Why are you looking at a King Records theme Hard Rock Cafe for Main Street? James Brown's music is great, but it will not serve the population that goes to Main Street. A Peter Frampton bar might get national backpage coverage (for all of 2 minutes), but 21-35 year olds are not going to want to kick it on the dance floor to "Do you feel like I do?"

Earth to John Cranley! THINK LOCAL! Put the stale entertainment on the Riverfront or around Fountain Square. That way the tourists (suburbanites) can find it without having to ask a city dweller for directions. They hate talking to someone not protected by a lead lined SUV, those people(me) are freaky. After all, if you don't want to live in the suburbs, there must be something wrong with you. (Cough, Cough)
