Skybridge to Heaven

[New-ish] So, who thought the downtown skybridge wouldn't pass? Anyone? Anyone? Yes, it was just pins-n-needles waiting for the evening TV news last night: "After we get done beating this polygamist sect story into the ground, we'll tell you how the big skybridge vote went--but not until we analyze the results of tonight's American Idol/Dancing With the Stars/Biggest Loser/Big Brother!"

What was surprising, besides one councilman blubbering over a mall, was another councilman's concern about The Gateway: "I don't subscribe to the point of view that this will not harm Gateway or that in fact it may be positive," said J.T. Martin, who voted for the skybridge. "I think it's going to affect it quite a bit. It will be interesting to see what Gateway becomes."

Like, say, an overpriced beige strip mall that bakes in the summer and freezes in the winter? We're already there--can't wait till they build some more all over the valley. (Bill Frost)

    The trib mentioned some worried the skybridge might kill downtown. Actually downtown is already dead, the skybridge just makes it easier to walk over the carcus.
