Coming and going

Chicken Corner reported earlier today that when Joel and Victoria Osteen preach the Gospel of Success at Dodger Stadium on Saturday night, the Scott Avenue gates would be open only for incoming traffic. Turns out that wasn't quite correct. I got an email time-dated 2-something this afternoon from Noel Pallais, Dodger PR person, who said the gates will be open coming and going:

Please note that due to an oversight on my part, the email from yesterday relative to the event on Saturday should have mentioned that the Scott Avenue gate WILL be utilized for outbound traffic. All other information was accurate.

And, yes, if you're wondering, those are the same gates the Dodgers promised (just the neighborhood) wouldn't be open any way but one way. Well, seems to Chicken Corner that if Osteen is going to use baseball imagery in selling the gospels and, if Osteen is going to attract the same number of cars, the same promises to the neighborhood should apply.
