Farewell Mr. Crosby

All good intentions have a potential to turn into paving material for the road to hell. My road just had another pothole filled, because I had hoped to publish a farewell article to local poet and man-about-town Gregory Crosby the night after his going away party. That was 8 days ago.

Anyways, last week the former CityLife Art and Theatre critic posted his last article, had some drinks with friends at local haunt Dino's, and sang a karaoke duet with Dayvid Figler. Dapper in his suit, he was without his trademark hat. A local fixture, he performed in local poetry events, contributed to Vegas publications, and was a First Friday bus tour guide. Now he has left the desert for the East Coast gotham that is New York City, his trip and time there funded by his 2005 Nevada Arts Council Artist Fellowship. Our loss is NYC's gain, where he will continue his studies in a program at some college that completely slips my mind as I write. Enjoy the concrete jungle, Mr. C.

On a final note, ponder the following picture and note the handsome similarities between Mr. Crosby and CSI creator and Vegas resident Anthony Zuiker.
