Well, isn’t this nifty? Who says government doesn’t work for the people?
This is, however, the final draft of the document. The first version was quite different; one of the Haight Street Irregulars broke into City Hall and stole a copy so I could share it with you:
WHEREAS the Grateful Dead’s concert at Barton Hall at Cornell University on May 8, 1977, was perhaps the best show they played that week, depending on whom you ask, and
WHEREAS the show has become a local cottage industry, and
WHEREAS on the other hand, you pop Cornell in the tape deck of your Datsun and turn that shit up, and you have a good old time, and
WHEREAS there is no Sugaree or Half-Step, precluding the show from ever truly being the greatest show of all time, and
WHEREAS it was snowing when the students exited the building, and
WHEREAS it has been said many times by many people, the best people, that Cornell was just a tremendous show, a real top show, and probably the best of all time, which is what many, many people are saying
NOW THEREFORE, I, Dan Klein, Vice Chair of the Tompkins Legislature hereby proclaim May 8, 2017, as
GRATEFUL DEAD DAY
WHICH means that all members of the Grateful Dead are eligible for up to 10% off at participating local businesses.
