When I started this blog, it was with the purpose of bringing readers behind the scenes of what’s going on downtown and to advance discussions on how to continue its momentum.
And I do this without a net. Hopefully, more often than not, I get it right and don’t cross a line that is becoming more and more murky in this changing media age.
Did I go too far with my post on Downtown Tulsa Unlimited? I don’t think so, but I can see where some think I was implying in the original posting that Downtown Oklahoma City Inc. was acting like a bully.
Truth be told, I’ve got it from several sources that there is tension out there. But as I tried to say, and maybe not as well as I could have, is that such tension can evolve into something much worse regardless of actual actions.
Perception is half the game, and that’s what I suspect was a key problem with DTU – from my own experience they weren’t very good at telling downtown Tulsa’s story or addressing constituents’ concerns.
I’ve tweaked my post to be more clear about what I was trying to convey.
