Thanks to new media, a cornerstone of old (old, old) media came back to downtown Lexington today. Two town criers, Brittny Congleton (left) and Alex Johns, were selected by ELandF Gallery from a group of people who submitted essays expressing interest in the position. ELandF also organized the event. A third crier, Elaine Parker, was selected but could not appear today. If I were a more paranoid individual, I’d find it awfully suspicious every time someone was prevented from attending an act of public dissent..
During the reading, a sound not unlike every emergency vehicle in Lexington going code three was suddenly blaring a few blocks away. Was this another attempt to dissuade our heroines?
One final declaration of inanity before the hanging. If you haven’t read this thing for yourself, it includes a never-ending list of all the Webb developments in Lexington. The size of their footprint is a little unnerving.
