29. another supersoda anecdote.. cops+guns+press bus=iraq
oh ya?
how you like the red lobster so far? :]

ay, one thing i didn't mention in the story was ---
we were on the "press bus" getting shuttled to the stadium from the Adam's Mark hotel and they took us through some pretty unflattering neighborhoods near the stadium to get in the back way -- (side note: when they had a world cup venue here in dallas in '94, the worst of dallas' neighborhoods surround "Fair Park" but city officials made sure all routes and pathways "important people" would be riding through would be poop-free, etc...not sure if they pulled it off) --- and so ---

about three minutes after Shunt commenting that "This place looks more and more like Iraq" --

our bus is at a red light... to our right is an apartment complex, and we notice a commotion .. there are two COPS pointing GUNS at about eight black people cowering back in the parking lot... so we all stare .. and I start telling the driver to run the red because something's about to go down.. well, the bus pulls onward, and as far as we heard, no gunshots -- but we didn't venture back later to see if there were any chalk outlines... of course, if anything happened it probably made page 27H in the next day's edition of the Jacksonville Oox Gazette Times Telegraph, being trumped by how great the vendor-booth-filled Motorola Walkway of Lanterns was!

And funny enough, Shunt then reiterated his claim that it reminded him of Baghdad!... a pretty crazy thing to see!

(not to stomp on yo towne, KyndCulture -- the walk down the riverside path was pretty cool... this was just our one-day impression of what we saw)
