A FrontBurner in the field reports:

Also, for anyone else who wants to see nightly flashing lights, honking horns and cheapo fireworks (read: flare guns) going off, head to the AT+T square at Akard and Jackson / Commerce at about 6:50 every night. That’s when a cadre of South and / or Central Americans piles out of their white van blasting air horns, spinning flashlights and shooting off flare guns. Unfortunately it’s not a revolt against AT+T’s pathetic DSL service nor an aweome fiesta. They told me it’s pigeon control. Personally, I would think there is some kind of problem with shooting off those flare guns in the middle of downtown. However, since we now have those cameras, some of which are actually monitored by retired DPD officers, I guess we should feel safe that even if we’re getting shot or burned that it is all on film. Too bad there aren’t any cops to come and help!

Sounds like some good bird-watching opportunities, Nancy.
