Here's another fine mess you've gotten us into!
Then there are the things that you'd expect to hear about - but don't. Remember when Pixie Dust Bob Larsen of the "Composites Recycling Technology Center" promised a "series" of "big announcements"? As in, "Coming Soon!" more exciting news! That was over a month ago, and there has followed a total of, as I count it, one "big announcement." (One in a series! Collect them all!) Maybe the news that the State was reconsidering their grant funding put the brakes on the rest of the announcements, but...Gee, Bob, was your whole great idea, successful business model, commercial enterprise so dependent on grant funding that one little bump in the road would cause it to crash?
It kind of looks like maybe so. Which, uh, kind of makes us wonder if it really is such a great idea or successful business model or whatever else you peddled. Kind of sounds like Pen Ply all over again, frankly. That didn't end so well for anyone - except for local scumbag Grant Munro, that is.
Shhh! Quiet, please! People are trying
to watch a movie that's not being shown.
Then there's the Lincoln Theater, which finally sold - they say. This was another case where the entire arrangement seemed a little suspect, but the purported purchaser promised more information would be coming soon...And again, that was over a month ago, and I haven't heard any further word about plans, designs, management, or even the proper and certified closing of the sale.
On a related note, I also haven't heard anything about how Scott Nagel is swiftly and surely returning the money he (supposedly) raised in his (failed) effort to get people to buy the Lincoln for him.
So, anyone got any inside dope on these dopey endeavors? Sucker-bait schemes make a lot of noise in being born, but seem to like to die in silence. At the very least, let's ask a few more questions, shall we?
In the meantime, I'm going to sit back and wait for the next "big announcement" - like maybe a new airline to service Port Angeles that's "Coming Soon!"
DIY Airlines - Taking off soon!
