John Mason follows up on the controversy over American Glory's Classic Car & Motorcycle Show in today's Register-Star: "Car show causes uproar in city." Some quotes from the article are worthy of note. Mayor William Hallenbeck, speaking about the business owners who have asked him to rescind the mass gathering permit: "I haven't heard any reasonable arguments other than they don't feel their businesses will be better off. I can't get into the personal issues of people who may not get along with Glory." Joe Fiero, complaining about the negative reaction to his plan: "I'm trying to do something right. I've been doing this since I came to town, and I keep getting squashed."
