You Say It's Your Feliz Cumpleanos, It's My Feliz Cumpleanos Too ... OK?

Today is Tucson's birthday, and if you look at the schedule here, notice things got started early—8 a.m., with plenty of free stuff all over the city: free chocolate chip cookies, free admission to the zoo, FREE stuff.

Then, of course, there's the Fourth Avenue Underpass party from Main Gate Square to downtown. This is probably the day we get to see if any higher power is paying attention. There will be loads of people showing love to our city and celebrating the reunion of downtown and Fourth Avenue, while some will be looking at the underpass bridge wondering why it was so spendy. If we get through the day in peace and harmony, with a few smiles on our faces and maybe a short monsoon to help us prepare for winter, perhaps we'll all go home tomorrow night ready to do the right thing when it comes to our city and downtown.

Let's just hope we all wake up Friday with a clear vision of what the hell that means. Hey, one can hope, right?
