Cat Killer Don on stage with Chrissie,
this takes the cake. PETA Senior VP there as well. They must not have read Akron's cat killer ordinance.
How hypocritical!

Well, there we have it. With 40,000 PETA members in the state, Akron's problem of bein' a destination city is over. I can only imagine that these folks will be flockin' to Akron to be first in line for seats in this new restaurant.

After a rousin' round of apritif's at the south end of Main Street, patrons can weave they way through the homeless as they make their way north, gaze longin'ly at the dark box office of the Civic as they pass (mebbe they will get a special treat on their way and get to watch our mayor get a parkin' lot attendant fired) and eventually make their way to the new restaurant where they can treat their palates on such delicacies as tofu surprise.

Then to top off their evenin', they can make their way past the homeless rest stop, popularly known as the main branch of Akron's Library, to the world renown museum.

To end their day, that can retire across town, to the new hotel in East Akron and relax in their room while gazin' out of the balcony window at the huntin' and fishin' mecca.

Or, they could stroll from the Northside Lofts up to Maiden Lane and stop in at the gallery and Mocha Maiden coffee bar. After coffee, they could check in to Musica for an intimate music concert. Or they could walk over to the Icehouse for a dance concert, and then to the new library to catch a public event in the beautiful auditorium there. Afterwards, they can cross the street and visit the new art museum, then go up a block to Summit Art Space to see a cutting edge theatrical production by The Bang and the Clatter Theatre company. On the next day, they can continue south on Main Street toward the Akron Civic Theatre and Lock 3, making sure to stop in at the Peanut Shop for snacks and Stage Left for souveniers. Still further south, visitors have a wide array of dining/drinking choices and in season, a game at the ball park.

Downtown has undergone tremendous changes since I lived over the Diamond Deli in the early 90s. Those who keep putting it down wouldn't like any downtown anywhere. Just stay in the suburbs and do without any culture.

Come to Downtown Akron for the culture?

That’s like a sign for traveling in ancient times. Come to “Sodom For the Sodomy”

It might sound good on an advertisement. But either way its a pain the butt when they actually get there and see what it is really like.

I would stay away from both. Since both sound very unpleasant to me… Of course the people that thought making Akron to be a cultural stop for gays might Think it’s a great idea.

They might be able to spin it into a better sounding tourist attraction.

Making dowtown Akron Into a real Money maker, for all those that want to visit Downtown Akron in all its NEW Glory.

Wait I was wrong. All they need is a catchy new slogan for Akron.

We should think one up to draw people into the NEW cultural Mecca of the Northeast.

Moon Pie don't lie
Nor does the Pilot in the Sky
Rusty is a sissy
And Cats love Chrissy
Don is the King of the land
Lay some green in his hand
Or you'll be out in a hurry
The receiver of Donny's fury
Now you say he aint that bad
Just a Kenmoore lad
Did you see him french Alex?
and do a rear end flex!
Yeah Moon Pie
he may be the apple of your eye,
but you gotta get past ole Rusty
Moon Pie Crusty!

Seriously, the blog is lame. Same set up as all of your other gossip-y endeavers. First it was the cty exec, then the mayor, and now it's your old boss and ex-workplace.

You need more focus, less angst & bitterness.

Ah yes, another leather-clad, self-styled "celebrity activist" trying to make the great unwashed masses feel guilty for eating meat. I guess it's OK to kill animals in order to wear their skin but not OK to kill them in order to feed people. What a hypocrite.

Bore, at Saturday's show someone from the audience yelled "NICE BOOTS!", referring to Ms Hynde's knee-high leathers. She stated who made them (someone McCartney), and went on to comment about people nailing leather-wearing vegetarians as hypocrites. I'll have to review the tape to see exactly what she said.

Not too long ago Ms Hynde was marching on the vegan trail. Vegans are much more strict and more prone to activism than regular vegetarians. The vegan "religion" would preclude her from wearing anything animal. Weird.

Stella McCartney, Paul's ex, was the boot designer. While Chrissie talked about not being a vegan hypocrit she tended to put her own vegan friendly boot in her mouth. "It's good to where boots, there better for kicking them in the teeth." The comment was made towards people that question her authenticity of being a true vegan.

Now, she's all about non-violence towards animals, but indicated she would kick a human in the teeth. Interesting.

I chose to ignore the politician parade and the political comments and thoroughly enjoyed the great music. I just wished I could have had some popcorn!
