Meanwhile, at the Hotel Chelsea

Though it's been over a year since longtime Hotel Chelsea manager Stanley Bard was booted by the hotel's board, residents in the storied artists' enclave are still calling for his return, and management is not amused: "Last Thursday night Debbie inscribed the paper tacked up on the elevators on each floor with the wildly inflammatory slogan: 'Bring Back the Bards'. The next morning at about 9:30 AM two policemen came to our door. The security cameras had caught Debbie in action! ... The Chelsea Hotel has a proud history of radicalism and dissent. Have we really sunk so low that not even this polite, mild mannered exercise in the Freedom of Speech is to be tolerated?" [LWL]
