Jackson’s Seafood has closed.


This prompted a rant of mine on Twitter:

Someone needs to say this aloud: Downtown New Albany needs to get its shit together, now. Businesses, non-profits, government … now. 

Downtown is not finished. It is barely started, and exceedingly fragile. I see what’s happening in Jeffersonville and across the river, and look around at the “players” here … and it’s fairly discouraging. No cooperation, no plan, and no signs of it changing. Mark my words: Without unity, this great experiment will be making no further progress, and in fact, might well regress.

I’ve warned you. I’ve been warning you. Sorry I had to get all apocalyptic on you. Is it beer thirty yet?
