    The last few Downtown Get Downs we've been too have been nothing but drunk fests. I don't want my kids seeing all the misbehaving people stumbling around, puking in bushes and peeing around the corner. Just gross.

    The entertainment line up is poor and I am losing interest, because the people the have lined up will appeal to the FAMU crowd and we know they are not the ones with the money to spend, I am tired of Tallahassee going ghetto all the time!

    I hope we have thousands of concealed armed concerned citizens show up to enjoy themselves and the festivities and we can be there to protect others when the flash mobs attack.

    Sorry City of Tallahassee...can't afford the gas money to go, the money for the fine from the red light cameras and the money to replace my side window AGAIN when the thugs that come to these things bust in my window to search my car. We are RSVPing not attending.
