Boy, the city’s new sit-lie ordinance must really be working. Because, after months and months of hearing only about our dire, deadly situation in the downtown area – after City Council meetings full of scolding and finger-wagging, after approximately 5 million airings on the local news of that one truly disturbing beating at the Satellite Diner, after expressions of doom about the potential that no one will ever do business downtown if so many shaggy types are allowed to sit or lie – there is an unmistakable blossoming of investment and energy downtown.
