Re: “City Council will hold Parcel 5 public forum

There is a finite number of people who attend arts functions in Rochester. Syracuse, Buffalo, Hamilton, and Toronto offer all the same shows as RBTL, so tourism dollars are not likely to go up by much, if at all. A new venue will cannibalize ticket sales at other local venues at first, out of curiousity, then RBTL will be back to the numbers it already draws. At that point, subsidies will have to kick in to keep the project built on a prime piece of downtown real estate in business.

Re: “Tensions build over a new RBTL theater

Arnie has been threatening a suburban location for at least 10 years, but here we still sit, with him holding out for the old Midtown location. Disingenuous at best.

Re: “It's time to build support for a regional school

Nice words, Rachel. But going door-to-door asking folks to send their kids to city schools (as your link suggests) ain't gonna desegregate or improve anything. The kids need a good education REGARDLESS of integration or segregation. The change has to come from a systemic commitment to educating ALL kids. The concept that we need need more white kids in city schools to make sure all city kids get educated needs to be demolished.

Re: “The water will win

Mark Phillips--you do realize that there are five Great Lakes and locations along those lakes don't all have the exact same weather as Rochester? This is the biggest issue when it comes to sanely debating lake levels--folks who can't look beyond their own back yard.

Re: “Barack Obama’s $400K: dimming hope for change

Is he supposed to fry burgers at McDonalds? He has big plans for social serviceand needs money to do that. He's making that money legally. Why are you holding him to some saintly standard?

Re: “Theater review: 'Titanic the Musical' at CenterStage

Penfield actually did the full musical 15 years ago. It had a HUGE cast.

Re: “Activist wants changes in anti-abortion movement

"She feels that for abortion rights advocates to be truly pro-choice, they too must work to improve society for women who choose to give birth."

What?? Who donates to Planned Parenthood, the organization that offers prenatal, postnatal, and emotional support for pregnant teens? Certainly NOT anti-abortion folks. Who supports in-school daycare for teens with children, so that they can graduate? Certainly NOT the red-leaning, anti-abortion folks. Who supports government aid for poor women with children? Certainly NOT the red-leaning anti-abortion folks.

The basis of pro-choice is to allow women A CHOICE to have a wanted child. We pro choicers do the best we can to support that.
