On the Closing Of Bell House

What, our many local non profit foundations flush with cash left over after donating $Millions to build a downtown performing arts center couldn’t afford to step in and save Bell House? But I thought this city was rolling in money.

Yes, it's sad, people will suffer, people will die but I learned a very long time ago what happens when you put all your eggs in one rotting, flimsy basket-- the bottom falls out. Yes, the media points to cuts at other levels of government but there was no where else to fall back on with all the local $Millions having been spent on 76 Trombones. Expect many more such announcements before the first concert is performed downtown and give thanks to Mayor Nancy Barakat Vaughan for having the foresight to make it all happen so very quickly.

The Mayor claims she has thick skin-- is it thick enough to live with the fact that she has sentenced innocent people to their deaths?
