Hot Summer Nights

It's not officially summer yet, but the cicadas are screaming, the humidity's sticking, and the crowds are streaming to Downtown Knoxville for various concerts, markets, and events. Even the downtown library is sponsoring a series of outdoor concerts. Next week "Midsummer Nights' Dream" open-airs on Market Square, so even Shakespeare is alive and well in Downtown. I've been on this "Downtown" soapbox since the 1982 World's Fair. It looks like it's finally paying off. It may well take 50 years to invigorate our Downtown . . . just about as long as it took for its decline, come to think of it!
