the MCC: worst idea ever.

Please do yourself a favor and read Mike Jameson’s commentary on the Music City Center in the City Paper from Sunday. I wish I still lived downtown so I could still claim him as my councilman.

Jeff Woods’ commentary here mostly echoes my thoughts as well. Granted, it’s not every day that we have a week of subfreezing temperatures, but having water mains that date to 1910 is unforgiveable. It’s a spectacular reminder that we have Actual Things we could be spending our money on in this city: traffic management, mass transit, infrastructure, affordable housing. The list goes on. This city does not need a new convention center.
