Sidewalk Smarts and Downtown Doings

A series of public suggestions for civic improvement

“What Knoxville really needs is a place where bicycle cops can ride their bikes downtown without accidentally running folks off the sidewalk—oh wait, we have something, it’s called Gay Street. Weird that every other bicyclist in town uses it, but I guess it’s just too dangerous for the venerable KPD cadets.

“Knoxville also needs a parking lot downtown for the exclusive use of upright bassists and drummers and a general store downtown that actually features local Knoxville music in its music section and via its background music. It ain’t like we suck.”

—Daniel Kimbro, musician, Vol fan, WDVX suck-button pusher (Part one—look for more ideas from Kimbro in the August 29 Triage section.)
