Bye Bye Langdon Street Bridge

It's gone. The Langdon Street Bridge was taken down last week and will be replaced with a new one in a month or so. The bridge had been there since shortly after the 1927 flood. I believe they are going to refurbish the old metal trusses and place them on the new bridge but they'll only be decorative. Hopefully, it'll look similar to the old bridge.

I feel bad for the owners of Global Gifts. You can just barely see their sign in the upper left hand corner of the picture. Those kind of stores rely heavily on the foliage tourists but when you are located on the edge of a construction zone and a temporary dead end, you're screwed. Little old biddies from England aren't going to trek down Langdon Street into that rubble to buy some knick-knacks.

Here's an exclusive international scoop for False 45th.

This is information that Variety, The New Yorker, and The International Herald Tribune do NOT YET HAVE.

Knowledge that al-Jazeera, CNN, even the BBC, can only GUESS at.

News that will impress GIRLS from Tokyo to Toulouse, from Bombay to Berlin.

The dates for the 10th Green Mountain Film Festival are 16th to 25th March 2007.

Oh yes.
