Palo Alto unbalanced with
no artists, no free spirits
Re: “Palo Alto at practically three instances the scale?” (Web page A1, March 7):
Triple the inhabitants of Palo Alto? Convey it on!
I lately visited Austin, Texas. There are musicians, bakers, farmers, sailors, and many others. Younger folks, regular folks.
I’ve lived in Palo Alto for 55 years. The tradition of Palo Alto has modified in that point. Till visiting Austin, I didn’t grasp simply how unbalanced this space is and the way bereft of soul and spirit it has change into.
A wholesome human neighborhood wants folks from all walks of life, all of them. We now have no artists, no musicians, no gardeners, no philosophers, no free spirits.
These folks don’t make some huge cash, however they supply invaluable intangibles to the well being of a neighborhood. I need that again and if it takes tripling the inhabitants of Palo Alto, so be it.
