BOBBY RADFORD: Hey it's Bobby Radford here on the tail end of the night shift.
How ya doing, Riverport? Burning the midnight oil? Just waking up? Or are you getting ready for bed? Maybe you're asleep. I wouldn't blame ya! I'm not going down in downtown tonight. Not unless you're at the Riverport University campus where the protest against Monarch Solutions are still going on.
You see, Monarch wants to knock down the old campus library and put up a brand new building. The protesters are saying "that building's a part of our heritage, and we don't need Monarch gobbling up yet another part of Riverport."
Personally, I'm with the activists on this one. I'm sure Monarch's new building will be big and shiny but, well, c'mon who gives a shit? I love that old library even if it is kind of falling apart. I like things with character. And Monarch, hell, they've got all of the character of a brand new smartphone. Sure, call me a hipster, whatever. I just think you don't have to be a smug douchebag with organic sneakers and an ironic NASCAR cap to prefer a nice corner restaurant with personality to yet another Olive Garden, y'know.
Still, as much as it pains me to say this, I think this is a done deal. Monarch's going to take that library down no matter what we say. May as well pack it up, go home and and get ready for the next fight because you know they aren't done with our town yet, right?
