It’s wonderful to see grain elevators lit up

Recent movement on the plans to illuminate the grain elevators along the Buffalo River is thrilling and the right thing to do. Sometimes I wonder if the people of Rome, Athens, Jerusalem and Egypt ever worried over thousands of years whether they were getting the “highest and best” value from the Coliseum, Acropolis, Western Wall and Pyramids. We may be the first American city to discover our ruins as they are – celebration of the lives of people who lived here before us.
