The Dreamer of Dreams

If you have yet to catch local artist/genius Harlan T. Bobo in concert (he's on a European tour these days) -- there is a treat on YouTube: the song referenced above. Harlan has always been helpful throughout our effort to save our park -- he is a true inspiration!

I like the song-title because it reminds me of the first time I watched Gene Wilder in the role of Willy Wonka... also, there is a saying attributed to Walt Disney: "If you can dream it, you can do it."

Times like these, comfort comes from many precious illusions, including dreams. Yesterday's press conference was rather like a nightmare -- but it taught us a little more about this dream called life we are living at this time and place called "Memphis."

Save Libertylanders! Misty, Jessica, Tom, Edward, Nicole, Casey and Margo all caravaned to the press conference at the Parks Department on Avery, where we were prevented from entering the inner sanctum of said Parks Department by the Eva Braun of Midtown, aka: Herenton's Harpy.

We distributed copies of our FOI letter -- the letter with which Mayor Herenton sought to block the Pippin from its rightful place on the National Historic Register. Thank God the folks in Nashville have some spine -- they voted unanimously to override the Mayor's mean, spiteful attempt to stop our positive effort.

I just now got a phone call from a District 5 constituent -- the nice person thanked me for running.

Thank YOU for caring!!!
