COMMENT OF THE DAY: MONTROSE AIN’T LIKE IT USED TO BE “What’s with the petitions and the rainbows and unicorns? Renderings? Real hippys would squat on the land, throw up some tents to sell their bead jewelry and homemade hippy stuff until the police and/or bulldozers come. 21st century Montrose is full of pussies. 20 bucks sez the guy with the hearts on his sign is in line on opening day ready to fill his hemp messenger bag with organic chicken breasts and a sustainably farmed pomengranate flavored something or other at the overpriced new neighborhood-centric HEB.” [meatsack, commenting on What the Montrose Land Defense Coalition Really Wants To See at Wilshire Village]
When I read this earlier I thought how true!
It’s like Austin. All the Yups moved in for what it used to be.
I think that all the stray cats in the area have turned the residents into pu$$ies too!
You guys are jerks.
As a long time Montrose resident, I got a good laugh out of this one.
Misplaced taxonomy; those are hipsters, not hippies.
I’ve been around Montrose for many years and it was, in fact, rainbow-centric back in the 20th century. The only difference is the dude holding the rainbow sign is prettier than he would have been 20 years ago.
