Netherworld and above-ground Sabine Street news

While the inaugural ticketed-to-capacity chaperoned tour of the long-retired subterranean water cistern is being pitched as breaking news, another story -- of the less ephemeral kind -- is taking shape above; -- free and for all to see: The ongoing upgrades to the Jamail skateboarding facility. Alas, the rolling board acrobats will have to bide their time during the closure necessitated by the construction work. Spectators will benefit from the improvements, too, when completed, and additional square footage will provide enhance opportunities for sanctioned "tagging".

Jesus! - Is that a less than illegal graffiti? A veritable oxymoron?
