AUDIO OPINION: Endeavour flyover was an opportunity lost

The people of Sacramento proved that they will come together to celebrate a moment in history last week when the space shuttle Endeavour flew overhead on its way to its new home at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

It’s too bad that instead of a well-organized festival to commemorate the once-in-a-lifetime event, visitors to downtown Sacramento had to fend for themselves and take their best guess about where and when to look to the skies. The city could have seized the day and done something special; like offer a free parking incentive so that people might stay a little longer and have lunch or go shopping, stay for a parade or festival, or otherwise further explore downtown.

The team at the Forum Podcast lament this missed opportunity in the two-minute clip above. What do you think of our reasoning? Are we right on the money? Or just complaining too much?
