I have only one question: when are we holding the first dance-in on the lawn?
Looks like soon, very soon.

Itâ€™s a Carrboro scandalâ€¦and Carrboro residents are dancing backâ€¦Wednesday, August 23, 5:30 pmâ€¦ Last week Carr Mill Mall manager Nathan Milian told Bruce Thomas, dancer extraordinaire, that he could no longer dance on the â€œprivate propertyâ€ of Weaver Street Marketâ€™s lawn. Read www.newsobserver.com/102/story/476463.html for a more complete story.
Today, Weaver Street Market and Carr Mill Mall put out a press release with their â€œsolutionâ€ to this PR fiasco: a new program called â€œLive on the Lawn.â€ These scheduled events will feature performers who apply at Weaver Street Market and are â€œapprovedâ€ by Carr Mill. The press release says there â€œwill be a limit of one performance per week per artist or group.â€
Personally, I donâ€™t dance once a week. I dance when I want to. I want Bruce to dance when and where he wants to. Please come help us make this point: TOMORROW, Wednesday, August 23, 5:30 pm.
Bring instruments. Bring your dancing shoes! Bring your friends.
Civil dance disobedience in Carrboro? Makes sense to me! ( via youtube)
