Why is it some folks celebrate the misfortune of others? Jim Kershner (“Recession club not so private and exclusive,” April 11) finds the troubles at Black Rock to be the silver lining in his Great Depression.
Would someone please remind Jim of the good that comes from the investment to develop and build projects like these, including jobs and tax revenues? A lot of money has been spent here by people who never heard of Spokane or Coeur d’Alene before. It was only yesterday we were celebrating these things.
People with money or the ability to make it should be welcomed to town – to stay awhile, enjoy themselves, spend a few dollars while they’re here, enjoy all the lovely things our region has to offer. But it won’t surprise me a bit if they don’t subscribe to the paper.
