I will be there for sure. I am happy to know that the police will stop by. It is great to know that talk turns to action so quickly in our neighborhood.

Maybe someone can create a PDF for people to post in their buildings. Possibly include the URL to UpTown update and Crime Blotter as I know there are still people who do not know about these great sites.

I live on the West 900 block of Sunnyside (where 2+ shootings have occured in the past 4 days - will this meeting also include what is going on around all of Uptown or will it focus on Sunnyside Mall?

To anonymous 9:46, I am wondering what your point is. To upsboy1, I think it is for all Uptown residents. Why not? I would eventually like to see a bunch of these "meet and greets" all over Uptown. If we get enough people involved, it could be effective. Especially if it is a regular thing. It's kind of the flip-side of what the gangs do only we would have a positive, non-violent presence.

Jeez - 9:46 was answering that yes, everyone is invited.

The animal or 40+ year old ladies who like 'em young? I say yes to both.

So Anonymous and his babe-magnet dog will be out trolling for dates with 40-plus women between 1 and 3 pm this Saturday.

When the sun goes down and everyone goes home, the gang bangers will come out to reoccupy the space. When the fights start and the guns are shooting, I hope Anonymous will be safely at home getting him some.
