There’ll be a merchant meeting on Tuesday morning, 8:30 a.m. at The Root.


DNA says: “Do you own a New Albany business? Join other business owners for a networking time and to learn ways to get involved in our community.”

Seeing as it’s been a while since I attended the top-down recitation of City Hall directives, and have time to kill tomorrow morning, this sounds like a plan.

But seriously: Business owners do need to meet each other and discuss pertinent issues, preferably in the form of an autonomous independent business association, because otherwise business owners run the risk of being co-opted into political agendas, especially during an election year.

I realize not all of you appreciate my repeating an obvious truth such as this, although consider that the wonderful thing about both Tiggers and obvious truth is each stands on its own.

Indie business owners can, too. See you bright and early tomorrow.
