Or for that matter, what about next month, when Evolve 2009 will attract Charles Darwin fans to the CAS?
Here’s what some of the neighbors think: the garage is an attractive nuisance that encourages visitors to queue up and idle in their cars all around the councourse on the weekends. If the garage were bigger, wealthy tourists could just drive in easily and be done with it. If the garage were smaller, maybe the tourists would find somewhere else to park.
(Next question: is it too expensive (three bones an hour, on the tweekends) or too cheap? Vested interests could make the case either way.)

And aren’t we lucky to have such popular attractions in our backyard?
Yes we are.
