8th 4th Street Meeting Parking Deck

The county-famous Meeting Parking Deck is designed for anyone with a need to have a meeting today. Gate attendants are constantly keeping track of which spaces are free and which people have not yet met anyone, and a roving pack of feral docents guides visitors into teams where they can hold meetings or --- using the cylindrical tower at the north-east corner of the structure --- even start to facilitate networking or some such rot. This parking deck leads the way in the whole Lesser Pompous Lakes Area as being the fourth-largest small-business incubating parking deck and counts dozens of small-business success stories to its credit by stealing the mail from the Lastman's Glurge Small Business Development Center and Discount Candle Emporium. Maximum parking fee of $18.50 per day which can be waived with proof that you know someone who died of boredom during a Total Quality Management seminar.

The remainder is over at my humor blog. Also appearing there this week:

Trivia: In 1902, Philadelphia Phillies owner John I Rogers obtained injunctions from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court against a number of top American League players who had broken their contracts with the Phillies. This forced stars such as Napoleon Lajoie, Ed Delahanty, and Elmer Flick to not play in the city, and the Athletics had a 56-17 home record as a result. They won the penant.

PS: Why I Say 1/e About This Roller Coaster, if you were wondering, and I mean to get to why I don't actually believe it shortly, though the alert reader probably already sees why not.
