What time is it?
I don't wear a watch. I tried, for years, but the darned thing felt like a handcuff on my wrist, so finally -- knowing that I'm anal-retentive enough to be five minutes earlier than anyone else to any event ever -- I gave up on the watch and decided I could rely on glimpsed timepieces that seem to be everywhere.The stumbling block was downtown Lawrence, at least for a couple of years. Until I got a cellular phone -- which doubled as a handy-dandy timepiece -- Massachusetts Street baffled me. How do you have a main street that doesn't have a big bank clock for all the pedestrians to look at? That was new, in my long and rich history of living in Kansas towns.The big giant clock in the 600 block of Massachusetts Street didn't really help, either. Because of the way the buildings were built, with a series of folds and recesses -- you really can't see the clock unless you're standing directly across the street from it. Making it less than useful.So I was pleased -- nay, thrilled! -- at lunchtime today in downtown Lawrence. Central Bank is putting in a location at Eighth and Mass streets, and they added a bank clock to the exterior! It's not digital, so you'll never know the temperature, but there's a clock! Glory be!Finally, downtown is complete.
