Well, I had hoped for more discussion in the post below, but I'll stick up an open thread anyway. Partly I wanted to remind folks that Bald Eagle Days is going on Saturday and Sunday at the QCCA Expo Center.
In other news, the skatepark lights have been off before 10 the last few nights, so the naysayers prevailed on that one. I wonder what it takes for them to flip them on if we get some freak 50 degree days in January or February. If it doesn't take much to get them back on if folks want to skate or bike some warm evening, then I might not be as against having them off for the 10-below nights.
Speaking of the Eagles, the list of cities that the world's most expensive band is hitting on their tour puts the Quad Cities in pretty good company. Chicago, Orlando, Cleveland, Kansas City.... Cities that have top-level professional sports teams. And Moline. Not too bad. Now we'll see how many people can afford to go.
