Mayor Anthony M. Masiello seems awfully excited about the renovations at Shea's Performing Arts Center.
Who can fault him?
The mayor recently interviewed Patrick Fagan, Shea's president, on the mayor's televised talk show, "Mayor Masiello on Buffalo."
The two talked about the theater's bright prospects for drawing visitors.
Yet the minutelong video footage of the theater showed all of two people walking by the theater, and one seemed to be dragging her laundry.
Mostly, the viewers saw the empty sidewalk out front.
The Metro Rail cars that zoomed by looked pretty empty, too.
Message to mayor's TV technical staff: Next time, look for a crowd when shooting footage.
