I've been to Detroit's zoo, Toledo, Cinci and a small zoo in Grand Rapids and Fort Wayne's is on par with all of them - better than GR's. It's not as big as the others, but with children that's a good thing.

it was intended to be a light-hearted jab. I think she does have some of the same truth-telling problems as her husband where she struggles to be honest even with little inconsequential things. I loved how both Clinton and McCain's cadences and rhythm were intentionally more "black", for lack of a b...

I understand that. I was just pointing out that libertarianism can go either way on the issue (though libertarians have typically been pro-choice), depending on the personhood of the fetus. As more and more disaffected conservatives (like me) lean more heavily toward libertarianism the party may hav...

you'll be deaf by 35. No, seriously, it just depends. At the Rail or somewhere like that, who cares. At a bar where people are ordering drinks, carrying on conversations, etc... it's best to keep the decibel level at a comfortable point. Most bands (including mine) are guilty of playing too loud for...

Re: not 11

make sure you dont turn up to 11 here... Don't turn up to 11 anywhere. period. But you have to be very conscious of volume there, because the venue has to be very conscious of volume there, because it's in a residential area and they've had complaints in the past.

frankly, I'm tired of businesses using the smoking ban as an excuse for A. going out of business and B. (especially B.) paying musicians on average 50% of what we were making two years ago. I call bullsh*t! And I am 100% opposed to this stupid legislation, but for other reasons.
