I have come across an article in the past couple of days about a meeting is called off because too many wanted to come and there wasn’t enough parking. Read it here.
Give me a break. The article states that " attendees couldn’t be guaranteed parking" so the meeting was called off. HUH Since when was parking a guarantee? And at the same time, was it "parking that wasn’t guaranteed, or was it "Free parking" that wasn’t guaranteed.
I can’t tell from the story, but the inference is that a previous meeting on the topic (Taxi fares in DC) was held in a smaller venue and it wasn’t canceled. I also note that no new time and location for the meet was set.
I may be just a cynic, but I’ll just bet that there was something more to the cancellation and that lack of parking was just an excuse. After all, particularly with this topic, folks could certainly have taken a cab.
