... that's until the blood-sucking parasitical landlord decide to bump the rent again. Children need to express themselves! This old town is turning into such a Shame.

I'm disappointed that some of the billionaires whose children participate in many PYT shows and get a chance to shine onstage haven't stepped up to secure them a permanent home with the space they need. And what about our so-called "community foundation" that has $$ for initiatives in Africa but precious little for struggling organizations in our own backyard?

Nonprofits in SV are under threat of extinction and if those with the means to change that don't step up, our community is going to lose not just wonderful organizations like PYT but many of the places that help make this a decent place to live, breathe the air, raise a family and have the quality of life that we seem to be losing a bit of every day.

PYT is NOT losing its lobby as part of this downsizing, just Studio B, a restroom and storage space.
