I know some of you are probably tired of me challenging some foregone conclusions but I though tonight was a real waste of time. Kim had the plans already cast in stone and I am confused why she even bothered to talk to us. If there is no place for us why did we listen to her? I loose patience with people who think art is a frill and a casual pastime. I am thinking of her employers. It is time this country realized what the arts do for our economy. Graphics, only a part of the art industry, is the 5th largest industry in this country. Intertainment is the largest. There are more people doing visual communication for a living than there are chemists, biologists, psychologists and mathmaticians combined. If the Reach isn't going to serve the people they cannot blame the people for not coming. If you don't build it they won't come.
