Ah, but we're not talking about "30th Street" etc.
To play on the analogy, what I'm saying is that it's one thing if 30th -
100th Street in 40-ville is blocked, it's another thing if 40-ville itself
is completely blocked.
And, to be blunt, since when as contesters do we have the right to tell
non-contesters to vacate the entire band for the whole weekend?
Is that what I'm getting from some of these responses? Since it's a contest
weekend, we have the right as contesters to take over 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 &
10 to the extent that anyone else is being told if you don't like contests,
go elsewhere? Really?
Are we as contesters becoming (as a group) the equivalent of the schoolyard
bullies who toss everyone else off of the playground because it's now "our"
turf? Is that really the image we want?

If "40th Street" is closed, take a detour over to "30th Street", or "80th
Street", or "20th Street", or even "11th Street".
