Response To Bill White's Hard To Embrace The Arena Article In Morning Call
It's funny most merchants I interviewed said that Blues event hurt their business because it lacked diversity in performers. Maybe if they also included music from the neighborhood it would have been a bigger turnout. However I see that you would rather scare your READERS into thinking everybody downtown is an ANIMAL and wants their Warez.
If you are going to do a story about Reading's Soveriegn Center Don't you think it would have been better to interview the minority merchants on Penn Street. You could ask them what the effects would be if their minority merchant strip on Penn was destroyed tommorrow. NOT some upper scale restaurant owner up the street.
