Okay, I’m wasting my morning reading Unfair Pork once again, speed-reading, really, but this phrase from Fingers of Fury caught my eye:
Some of us likely know we used to call home the former KLIF-AM studios on Commerce Street and Central Expressway, till our former publisher decided, ya know, a sterile Uptown high-rise….
Yeah, the old KLIF space was fantastic, and I’ll bet the DO hasn’t been the same since it moved, but is the new abode of the New Times chain paper — on the Maple side of the corner of Maple and Oak Lawn — really “Uptown?” I’ll admit that I rank the marketing label “Uptown” right there along with “Metroplex,” but even so, I would think Uptown has to at least stop at Oak Lawn, if not maybe the west side of Turtle Creek? Any neighborhood-savvy FBvians want to help the DO describe its position in the urban geography? And be nice. I say it’s Oak Lawn, not Uptown.
