What a shame that Jacksonville will be sending such a talented individual into NYC for recognition instead of standing up and recognizing Mr. Harvey for the true genius he really is.  Funny, first thing we do at the schools are cut the art programs also.

  Lee Harvey returns to NYC on his own terms. He has as many fans and supporters in Jax as in NYC, if not more.
Hes making a  good decision in returning to the city now as the city is decaying in terms  of what it has been in the past. His return also should be noted as his inspiration of the city itself, of Occupy itself than the implication of Jacksonvilles rejection of Lee Harvey.

I don't know if its so much of Jax rejecting him as it is just becoming bored with the scene. There's really only so much you can do here & you can hit the wall pretty quick professionally, socially & artistically.

Some people are fine with settling for mediocrity. Lee isn't one of those people.

I predict Lee Harvey will open a sweat shop in NYC and have "Occupiers" working 20 hour shifts for pennies a day, producing Made In India propaganda.
