The Town of Lisbon is holding a public hearing this evening regarding the fate of the remaining Worumbo mill structure. I can’t think about it right now, because that old building has been a sentry over my little town all my life, watching out for my safety as carefully as Uncle Bob in his oil truck.
If a person were to take a train from Boston to New York City to Washington, DC, they would see a long, deep scar of collapsing factories. Like loose, dangling teeth, they wait for the wrecking ball. Eventually, once all the abandoned factories outside of, say, Bridgeport, Connecticut have been razed, there will be space for a smooth, paved parking lot for…UBS!
Parking lots and banks and coffee shops…world renowned!
