Still no reader reports from the Too Many Bars community town hall last night—people, please, don't make us start sending interns to these things—but a lively discussion about the past and future of the East Village has broken out in the comment thread of yesterday's post. Notes one sage commenter, "The malarial swamps and docks of the Lower East side were way worse than the drug nightmare of the 80s. So, I think the blogger above should remember back to the 1700s before he talks about how bad the 80s were."
