Day in Carrboro-Dancing Bruce Protest
The Carrboro News recieves first letter to The Editor
Today is a historic Day
in Carrboro. For the first time since Riki Hermanson nailed the
Grand Dragon with an egg during the KKK march, the town is coming
together to unite against a common enemy- The Grand Dragon of Carr
Mill Mall. After Ruffin, the manager/owner of Weaver Street Market,
the town aldermen and mayor and State Representative Ellie Kinard
all failed to convince Nathan to come to his senses, it has been
decided to send in the really heavy artillary. The Dancing Carborrites.
On Aug 23 at 5:30pm they will meet on the Weaver Street Commons
to begin a protest which will include 3 hours of non-stop dancing.
Dancing Bruce takes
up the recorder since being banned from Dancing at Weaver
They will begin with
the Electric Glide for 40 minutes, ease into a twenty minute Swing,
deteriorate to a few minutes of Slam Dancin' and then an hour of
Ballroom Dancing as they work up to the grand finale, a Musical
Chairs circle dance with Bruce dancing in the middle. The circle
will get smaller and smaller as a chair is removed and the crowd
or swaying bodies surrounding the circle gets larger and larger.
The last person sitting will then, stand up and dance a Tango with
Bruce, after which the protest will end.
Yes, we at The Carrboro
News are amazed that it has come down to this. We predicted that
it would have been settled much sooner, but we underestimated the
stick-to-it-ness of the Carr Mill Management. Staying the course
seems to the mantra of the day at all levels, no matter how self-destructive
the course is.
Also on this historic
day, The Carrboro News recieved it's first letter
to the editor, the last milestone we needed to crown us as The
People's Newpaper. It only took three weeks, which is a minor miracle
with the backseat position news has taken to MTV, soaps, reality
shows and every other mindless form of leisure time activity that
has taken over the minds of our good citizens of Carrboro. Yes,
we actually have a couple of other
ones, but they weren't really real. They were just emails to
the rest of the Auto Logic softball team(Mitch
for Mayor's team), that we put in to legitimize our letters
to the editor section.
keep those letters coming.
