good press for our fair city
Was anybody else listening to KPCC just now? Their five-minute segment of local news featured the PBID as the lead story, and it started out by observing that downtown had gone from a dingy dump to a hip, happenin' place. David Campbell was interviewed for the pro side and Craig Olson for the con -- and given their tenses, I'm guessing they were interviewed before the vote. In any case, it was a really upbeat story. I've met three different couples who drove out from Pasadena for a Saturday Art Walk; perhaps this story will increase the number of foreign visitors further.
