   Whether or not the drummers are with us, they have repeatedly demonstrated that they are not interested in supporting us through good neighboring. Perhaps we should ask the neighborhood board/NYPD to step in on our behalf. I know the GA has tried to communicate with them on several occasions about their playing times (especially not during GA's).

Will the drummers be our achilles heel?

In the News section of the site, these would definitely have a place.
On the front page, a widget with a headline and 1-2 line teaser for the latest X entries would look swell too.
