Nobody Told Me There'd Be...

For the Harvey family memorial service inside the old friend that is the Byrd Theatre, its 1,399-seat auditorium was filled with suffering people who had to be there. The presentation was to-the-point and uplifting, with a great emphasis put on their love of music and devotion to making us laugh, to promoting good times. We left feeling better; we still have a long way to go. The display pictured above was in the lobby.

The mainstream press will have its take on what happened. For a different look at the story, in the last week writer John Sarvay (at Buttermilk & Molasses) has done a splendid job of serving the community as a responsible publisher, at large, working with his own sense of how to tell the story. With the role blogs have played in living through the last week, I guess we've just seen yet another way the Internet is reshaping our notion of reality. Anyway, Sarvay's view of the event is worth reading.
