Letter From The Editor

Michael AbedinA Letter to Our Readers

In town for the Austin City Limits Fest? Have fun, but don’t move here. The city has reached its limits. Traffic and property taxes suck, and turns out we’re politically incorrect.

Texas, once part of Mexico, revolted and became an independent republic, partially because Mexico didn’t allow slavery in the 1830s and Austin’s namesake, Stephen F. Austin, felt freed slaves would be “a nuisance and a menace.” As a result, the city recently found itself on a list compiled by the Austin Equity Office of potential names to change and statues to move.

Hmm… why not?

Rename Austin Festival City. Sell the rights, like a sports stadium. SXSW@Festival City, ACL@Festival City, Formula 1@Festival City. Take some of the proceeds, buy some land outside town, and set up a rent-free reservation for anyone who can prove they don’t have to Keep Austin Weird – they made it that way. 

Then change that dang bumper sticker slogan to something more reflective of our current state. How about this? ROAD WORK AHEAD.
