The Tumbleweeds Strike Back

If you’re a regular reader of this blog you’ve probably seen my Why Pueblo post or perhaps you saw my Funding the City of Pueblo post where I proposed setting up a toll booth on Hwy 50 and charging $1 per eastbound vehicle. The toll booth idea made it’s way into the local print version of Fox News and generated some hate mail, perhaps because I pointed out that Pueblo West is located in the middle of a vast desert/prairie landscape where the wind blows the never-ending supply of dust around non-stop. Anyone with a green lawn in PW would probably be arrested on eco-terrorism charges in most of Europe, Canada, New Zealand and other civilized corners of the world.

According to local natural historians, the only life forms inhabiting the PW landscape 100 years ago were scorpions and tumbleweeds.

Well, it looks like the tumbleweeds have launched a counter offensive. Click this link for graphic details of the onslaught.

    Arrested on eco-terrorism charges? For a lawn? Your affection toward PW is abundantly clear without the hyperbole, Mr. J.
