Goodbye, Ben Burr


I really enjoy the quiet and natural Ben Burr Trail, as I walk most days. Other users and the neighbors like it just that way, too.

But the city of Spokane wants to make it a concrete and blacktop highway more suitable for skateboarders and other mechanized traffic. Hey, they have the money. Hooray for them.

And you know what? The city will have their way and shove it down our throats whether we like it or not. I’ve been there before with the city. I’ve dealt with them and their unscrupulous, malicious, evil, lying and self-disposing tactics.

I now contemplate my farewell to the trail. May God Bless all of us, and God Bless America.
