Video well worth 9 minutes of your time. If you want to see how not to engage social media, read the comments here from Newsweek’s social media guy. We didn’t say Grand Rapids is dying, content that we syndicate said it! We would never say it!
I’m willing to bet Newsweek gets fewer hits and lower dwell than any first-tier gun bloggers.
I’ll admit it’s ugly, but:
“It’s a town of trees, and now, when you look out, you see a superhighway,” Fisher said. “It feels like the tornado blew through here and knocked all our stuff down.”
except for all of the fear of dying, and actual death, and property destruction. WSDOT removed some trees from a right-of-way in order to construct something that’s been at the forefront of the local news for the last 20 years. I’d say that’s enough warning.
Also, since when was a two lane in each direction road a “superhighway”? Last superhighway I saw was 880 through OAK – land a 747 on that fucker, no problems. Cross traffic, too.
Was reading about this and that wrt Vietnam and got to thinking about my uncle Bob. A short amount of sleuthing (everything is online) and I found his land in Arizona; sadly, Bing’s view is bad and Google’s is worse.
I can’t stop thinking about how I don’t live at home, and I haven’t taken a road trip since 2005. Maybe this time, 2012, I’ll be in a position to do another 5k mile road trip. Doubt the current ride could make it up Bob’s driveway, but shit, that never stopped me from trying.
