A Good Argument for Bringing Back the Red Light District
...back in the day it was a place for folks to run free and have fun. Get their entertainment on. If it worked in 1908 why not 2008? After all, thems were the good old days everybody keeps talking about.
You'll find the eatery in beautiful downtown Shreveport at the corner of Common and Caddo. Go eat there. Not McDonald's, Taco Bell, Burger King, Olive Garden, Subway or Wendys. Go now and support a local establishment that is committed to letting your teens have a place to hang out. And if you see a Shreveport Police Officer lurking buy them a Coke and ask them to chill and let the kids be. It's all a part of growing the creative class in SB Land.
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
