A Matter Of Opinion

What’s become of the merry old souls?

As I was researching Expo '74 driver King Cole for today's editorial regarding his death, I got to wondering how he would have handled the task in today's polarized, government-is-the-enemy climate.

He came to Spokane to work for a group of business leaders, the people who typically made things happen in American communities in the middle of the 20th Century. Early on, he reached out to some 190 civic groups and included their grassroots energy in a grand coalition of business, government and civic organizations. 

I wonder where the tea party legions would have fit in.
