Questions use of waterfront image

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDNovember 8, 2013 

I see that the pro-coal (oops, I mean "pro-jobs") candidates in the county are using an image of an abandoned paper mill building at the waterfront in their campaign literature (along with a photo of a sea kayaker -- ah, quality of life!). I guess they see don't the irony in using an image like that building to promote development. What do you think the post-coal terminal property is going to look like in 20 or 30 years? Maybe like Gary, Ind., and much waterfront along the Great Lakes? Well, I guess we'll be able to cap it and build another marina. Hey, maybe we can get a new paper mill built on the waterfront downtown, too!
