Downtown Santa Ana Is Happening--No Way!
Anyhoo, you know you're entering a laugher when you read the headline: "Something's Happening In Santa Ana's Downtown." No way!
"But come to Artists Village on Broadway between First and Third streets after dark on a weekday night, and you'll see things you didn't see two years ago: cars filling parking spots, standing-room-only on restaurant patios and groups of youths hanging out on the Second Street Promenade," Elmahrek writes.
. . . Except it's been like this for more than two years now--more like five, if not seven. Young Elhmahrek maybe thinks Lola Gaspar has been there all these years?
Note to Adam: You're a great reporter, but keep the cultural analysis to a minimum. The article reads like something Coast would've published 10 years ago, or a waste of space that The Orange County Register regurgitates every couple of years. Stick to kicking Don Papi's ass, por favor--don't make me rush to finish my book so I can devote my full attention to him again. . . .
