Sometimes my stories just write themselves. This is one of them.
See today’s article in the Pantagraph about Tari Renner’s trip to Cuba: http://www.pantagraph.com/business/renner-reconnecting-bloomington-to-cuban-sister-city/article_5b63446a-77b9-588c-861a-05765c99bde1.html
The article ends with this quote from Tari:
Let’s look at what the Bloomington City Council will be considering Monday night: http://www.cityblm.org/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=11529
See PDF page 181:
Where in “free enterprise” does government have a say in who is allowed to conduct business?
Did Bloomington’s leadership learn that at the Karl Marx School of Economics?
It gets worse!
Flip back to pdf page 11:
Remember when Tari used to parrot: “Strip malls are dead”?
Evidently they aren’t anymore since Colonial Plaza rose from the dead and downtown hasn’t.
More on downtown sometime this weekend – it’s back on the agenda for Monday.
