Shame on us for missing this earlier, we haven't been as religious in getting our daily hot cup o' Siders as we have in the past. In his blog (which we can't recommend enough), Siders gives a more detailed account of what happened at the planning commission meeting where the Plea for Peace Center was granted it's permit. What happened you ask? We found another common ground to help bridge that generational gap between older city leaders and the young folks who inhabit their city. That common ground? Even older people!
The meeting that was supposed to be at 6pm apparently got pushed back to 8pm, which was too far past bedtime for the residents of Stockton Silvercrest. So they sent a representative to be the butt of pretty much every joke told (The bingo joke was fucking hilarious.)
So maybe this won't be as long a road as we thought it was going to be. Now we have two things in common, art and indifference toward olllllllld people. Hopefully the next thing we have in common with the not-as-old-by-comparison city leaders is a love of strippers. A guy can dream can't he?
