I’m so glad it’s scheduled for today because it’s supposed to be a frog floater for lots of other days this week......and beyond.

At least they have a chance of no rain today. :)

First I knew about this was today when they were talking about him on WSB. I wish him good luck but I think I can do without standing in a 90 degree sun listening a bunch of screaming teenagers .

I wish him the best of luck and also hoping there'll be a huge crowd for this special night for him.  This whole experience will be one of those life memories he'll never forget.  I won't be there this evening, actually didn't realize that American Idol was still on.  I'll have to start watching for the finales.

To those five or six people who chose to park their vehicles directly ON the sidewalk along N Johnston Street, blocking it completely, your failure to think of anyone or anything beyond yourselves created a dangerous situation for those who did park in a legal space and walked a few blocks to the event. 

 

When it was over, families with small children and babies in strollers as well as adults were forced to walk in the street, where of course drivers trying to beat the congestion were generally short on patience for driving along behind groups of pedestrians. 

First of all, state law prohibits parking on a sidewalk.  Secondly, there were a sufficient number of empty spaces at a nearby office complex to accommodate those vehicles, had anyone bothered to look. 

 

And finally, to those who regularly travel this street, SLOW DOWN.  For some unknown reason, there is no posted speed limit on a street that includes a school zone (nor is there any signage other than a crosswalk marker at the school, either).  The number of drivers who regularly floor it between the stop signs at Herman Avenue and West Memorial Drive is utterly ridiculous.  The lack of traffic enforcement in this school zone is even more so.

"The mystery of government is not how Washington works but how to make it stop". -P. J. O'Rourke

"The United States is a nation of laws: badly written and randomly enforced." ~Frank Zappa

"All persons ought to endeavor to follow what is right, and not what is established." -Aristotle

"No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him." -Thomas Jefferson

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority." -Noah Webster
