Post Haste: Another Uptown business had its window broken; We have updates on the graffiti wall

The business owner has gotten a lot of support on Facebook.

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Friday, April 15, 2016:

For many local businesses, fest season means making beaucoup bucks. But for Court Street’s Blue Eagle Music, Palmer Fest meant the opposite.

Frank McDermott, owner of Blue Eagle, posted to Facebook Sunday evening a picture of a major crack in his storefront window — presumably caused by revelers the day prior.

“This is what you get for living or trying to do business in a #1 rated party school that takes no responsibility for the actions of it's clientele,” McDermott said in the post. “Thanks, Palmer Fest - and Ohio University....”

The post garnered 185 comments as of press time. Most were supportive of McDermott.
