the wasteland

May 6, 2008

Melania and I drove out to look at the new power plant the other night. It was unexpectedly huge, and when I heard about the giant burners ready to be fired up… it was kind of chilling. This monstrosity on the banks of the river; not that I’m less to blame for it than anyone else.

Before that we were at Juarez. And as we left, we noticed that Gold Star is gone. I don’t know why, but what a loss. That center now has two of its largest spaces empty– and what’s there that’s new? Another check-cashing predator.

That mid-downtown area is being completely hollowed out.
