Editorial: Kingston Corridor as the face of our village…

A loose confederacy of good will and good wishes, polite discourse with room for animated forms but excluding rude, mean, destructive.  Where people identify themselves as part of the village, and meet with visitors and guests and residents coming from the space of “village”.  Villagers are versed in the lore and features and government and education, public spaces of the city, hands on when they can be, publicly grateful for the contributions of others, proud of their own when they get the chance and find the time.

It’s definitely a place for a villager to be seen: their presence always makes a place look nice.  When they say “It takes a village” that says a whole lot about just what a village is.
