  5. A strange update on the 24th — all events between 12:26 and 1:38 are listed as “happening now”!! I assume whoever was updating was trying to sound “current” but forgot to put the “past” events in the past tense.

    On the other hand, I can’t believe all those things were happening in just over 1 hour, i.e. Colleen Powderly reading poetry, Matt Shackelford reading poetry, Paulette Swartzfager reading poetry, Alan Murphy reading poetry with Mighty High and Dry, Mighty High playing, new items from Rochester Indymedia, ASL poetry with Eddie Swayze, Laura Klinkon reading, Dwain Wilder reading, Ryan Cupp reading!

    And why did all the details stop for the rest of the day!
