Irony rages in growth debate
"We're going to give them a heck of a fight," vowed one woman quoted in yesterday's Daily Progress account of an anti-growth event. Perhaps the youthful Progress reporter didn't spot the irony of quoting a Mill Creek South resident opposing development at Biscuit Run. The irony increased a few paragraphs later when the story named an outspoken Glenmore resident. Hello!? Mill Creek and Glenmore were the Biscuit Runs of their day, verdant countrysides whose subdivisions were vehemently opposed but now somehow seem appropriate as launching pads for citizen activism.
Perhaps the next Progress article on an ASAP event will ask the obvious follow-up question: "Why was it okay for you to buy into the concept of paving paradise but now it's not okay?"
