WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU NOT BE USING AN AIR HOCKEY TABLE?!?!?!? Unless, of course, you have a NEW air hockey table. That makes sense. ;)

It was not my intention to talk negatively about any kids, I apologize if that is how you took it, I was just trying to make a point of give it a chance before we all bash it. The city is trying finally to do something positive.

I like the idea of a wish list! whether or not they are new or used would never have bothered me 10 years ago. I always just wanted something to do. your right though, good intentions are only as useful as the will of the people. you can lead a horse to prune juice, but you can't make him drink it.

I think this is a great idea and I truly hope it takes off and works out. But I do have a random question, why is there a big flat screen TV in the "reading room"? I feel that if it is a room for reading, there should not be a TV there...just my opinion. But other than that, I wish the Center good luck!!!

I wonder if the people who are already criticizing it have done anything to contribute to it? It's easy to sit back and think the worst. I say "give it a try" and be positive about it. Teens read The Patch and it's sad to read negative adults bashing it before it even opens. It is discouraging. Kids need a place to hangout. Even though it doesn't look "cool" yet, that's ok. I would be offended if I'd been the one who donated some of the furniture and people are making fun of it saying it looks like a nursing home or a doctors office. Where's the gratitude? I wish all the people who are volunteering and organizing it, Best Wishes for Much Success.
