The Growler was amused to read two quite different press accounts of the recent dedication of the new Charles Houston Center, which the Cranky One attended.

From the Alexandria Gazette Packet, we had a typical Michael Lee Pope article on the ceremony, focusing on the Mayor's State of the City address but adding an extended wallow in the past. (When will he get over the romance of Parker-Gray?)

But the Alexandria Times's David Sachs weighed in with a much different perspective, questioning the expenditure of funds and the perceived neglect of the West End.

What's your take on the story?
