I agree that the needs to be concentrated in one area rather than two. I wish it could still be Hawthorne, since I live just a couple of blocks away, but even so, putting everything in inner SE would make it much more accessible. I ended up parked at the Alhambra and the Eagles for empty hours between shows a couple of times because there was no room in the other walkable venues. Also, a couple of times volunteers looked at me like I had a third arm when I wanted to go into a show that was nearly over, just to kill some wait time. The vibe was definitely off on Hawthorne this year.
@frankieb: Federal subsidies. Phoenix gets its water via a canal system largely built by the feds, at little direct cost to the ratepayers who benefit from it. Much of the rest of the desert southwest is the same. Think of it as their equivalent to the (dwindling supply of) cheap hydroelectricity we get from BPA.
RIP, Magic the Gathering Online eXchange.
So this is the doctor charged me $400 to "diagnose" a condition I told him I've had since I was a child. Looks like the bunch of fucking greedy nuns who run the place want to shore up their PR.
Nestle has never made a move to take over the city's water supply. A broad prohibition against privatization would certainly mean that any party would be prohibited; however, it is misleading to cast it as an imminent threat. "Hey, sign this! It will prevent (Nestle/The Tooth Fairy/Dick Cheney/Kobe Bryant) from taking over our water supply!" is not strictly false, but it is most definitely not the primary issue at hand.
Does the Pac-Man special have singing? Because both Jack Frost and Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town have some horrific songs that stick in your head for days. Ugh.
