Just a short entry because I have a lot of work to do. Yesterday in the Sac Biz Journal there was an article about how there is a new civic campaign to bring older people to Old Sac. You would think what with all the old-timiness and the scintillating name that brings to mind an elderly scrotum, that Old Sac would not be a youth mecca. But it is. In the past few years there have been several mini-riots and the police have been involved. So they're trying to drive the youth out and bring the oldsters in by having more live music of the type that youngsters don't like, like jazz and Dixieland jazz. They will be pushing a major public campaign soon, so expect to see commercials, print ads, etc. Bringing a whole new crowd in seems more difficult than figuring out a way to profit from the kids that are hanging out there. Kids always get a bad rap, but what are they supposed to do for fun? The club owners complain that those under 21 just hang out outside, so how about some all ages clubs? These kids have money, I'm sure they're patronizing some of the food-type businesses like the frenchfries from around the world place (bet you didn't know that old sac had a place like that). Does the fact that (gasp) many of these kids are not white have anything to do with it? That would be old-timey in a bad way.
