Ditto Paco, and thank you James for always having the energy to constantly correct peoples ignorant rants.

I actually don't want any of these folks who are commenting about Downtown to be a part of our community when they do not live or work down here. So maybe we just let them say whatever they want, obviously we get it, and won't live anywhere else.

No one is going to convince me that Summerlin is a fun place to live, no matter how eloquent or engaging the argument. Let all these people think that Downtown is horrible, and we will keep it organic, and growing at just our pace. I can barely keep up with all the events that take place anyway!

bbrummel, a couple of comments. First Paco has given years of time and commitment to actually effecting some change, and helping further the arts in Las Vegas. He really is someone who always puts his money and time where his mouth is.

Second, please don't let someone (one person) make you feel as though your time, and money were unappreciated and a waste of time.

If you are someone who is or was passionate about the arts, and by your many comments it seems that you feel strongly about this.

Let's all put our energy together, to BOTH question what has gone wrong, and what needs to be done, as well as have some optimism for the future. When we can come together to collectively work on this together we will be able to do great things.

Being divided isn't going to create anything exciting and new. If you are not interested in moving somewhere else, then lets figure out why you have such contempt for the arts, or Libby, or whoever it is, and move forward. Maybe we can introduce people to you that are actually giving all of their free time to making the future of Las Vegas better than it is now.

I'm not the most eloquent writer, however all I can hear from you, is that you have been burned by people in the arts, and for that I apoligize. There are other people who have given ALL of their time, their own money, and spirit to giving the city culture. I'm frustrated every single day when I look at the money that I have spent, only to have very few people care. My life savings, my time, and energy have all been given to this cause.

I believe in what we have here, it just needs people like you, to use all of that passion and aggression to help the ones that are really doing something!!
