You know -- a good man will talk to you in a civil manner but he will not be bullied. Tim quit after a private meeting with Carollo. Could have been nasty for Tim to quit.
|Tim Schmand, my friend, an honest, good man, quit. Carollo said that all events booked have to be approved by the Bayfront Park Trust. That never happened in the past. Maybe because they were not hip hop events (i.e. Black Events).|
Here is one of Tim's Poems - he is a writer. He is reading it in the park and you can see some of the wonderful additions he has made, the oak tree promenade, a beach, with chairs. This is man filled with good humor and love. I think the City should have worked with him instead of going to extremes. I can't help feeling this whole situation was fueled because Hip Hop will attract Black people. The police were angry over the event.
