You have to click on the month you want to view (on the left hand side) before the actual events will show. There's a bunch!
There's plenty to do: visitjeffersoncity.com/event-calendar/
What do "convention people" typically do when they're not at the convention, anyway?
So which is worse -- 2 giant cups of soda or 10 small ones? Same difference. If Mr. Fatty McButt wants to slurp down 5 giant cups a day, he should be free to do so if he's spending his own money. Will they start handing out ration cards next? Where does it end?
This reminds me of the movie "The Great Outdoors" (which I just watched last night, how weird is that?) where John Candy takes the challenge of eating the Old 96'er -- a Paul Bunyan 96 oz. blue ox steak. He does it (fat, gristle and all), only to upchuck it when they get back to the cabin and discover that the raccoons had strewn garbage all over the floor, and Dan Aykroyd exclaims, "Look at the maggots on that meat!" LOL
Would this apply to politicians as well? Oh wait, they don't get convicted...
This is true. But with all of the talk about a convention center, and "transformation" (not to mention regular yearly events like July 4th), they're obviously wanting to attract more visitors. How do they expect to accomodate them when the City's own employees have trouble finding a decent parking space? Kind of like putting the cart before the horse, ya know?
Of course, all those visitors would have to pay to park there (I believe that's called "revenue"), state employees just flash the badge.
How about a parking garage on Lot 10, with a walkway to another parking garage on Lots 8 and 9, with a walkway into the Truman Bldg? It would sure come in handy IF we get a convention center, and WHEN we eventually get a riverboat casino. Gotta accomodate all those visitors we hope to get, right? How about a little forward thinking??
Hmmm, I don't know. A lot of state employees would greatly benefit from doing a few jumping jacks. Then again, that would probably just cause the feedbag to fall off....
They could just be floating around the limbo that is DESE. Stranger things have happened....
