Do you think downtown Lawrence should be classified by the city commission as a “cultural district”?

---like, dude, where do you think "grant money" comes from? does it grow on trees?
no. it has to be taxed, or borrowed against uture taxes.

Giant glasses could be making a return. Kind of an anti-Palin thing?

What's this mean- more East Lawrence yards with moldy clothes draped across tree limbs and scrap metal ? How delightful! If this doesn't put us on map nothing will.

Better than declaring it a dark spiritual. District.

Man this is such a stupid Lawrence type question.

Mass Street is neat little collection of bars, shops and places to eat. Big deal. Most cities have that sort of thing. Even thug Topeka has areas like that but you do not see Topekans trying to rename the places they eat and get drunk at. But, goofy Lawrence thinks it needs to do so.

Just Flipping stupid man...

I would like to see downtown Lawrence become a "clothing optional" district

I live next to a 'historic district'. Ain't got culture though. It don't raise my property taxes none neither but it is bothersome to think we ain't got no culture. But I too live in a dark spiritual place. O'bob, you dodged out on the darkness, didn't you?

"Plot to raise the property taxes of surrounding homes in the area."

And we have a winner.

It beats being designated a dark spiritual area.

It would need to have some culture first.
