Civic-mindedness part three: The Pot and The Kettle

A bad case of the pot calling the kettle black.

Two minutes after my last post, I started reading some of my older posts. Sure enough, I got to my "No, it's MY Downtown" article.

The article (not my finest hour) was an almost militant swipe at suburbanites. I derided all the people who complain about our downtown: the panhandlers, lack of free parking, lack of big box retail, and so on; telling them they weren't wanted downtown, to stay home and leave downtown to us, the people who enjoy and appreciate it.

Not exactly civic minded. Or even friendly.

So, in the interest of "making nice" and scrubbing off the residue of hypocracy, I've deleted it.
Won't happen again.
