Government Sprawl, Part 2

Here is the brand new school I mentioned yesterday. In what once was a lovely rural grove, is not concrete, open space (fantastic for our hot summer days) and rooms to fill with the teacher we can’t afford to pay.

What a nice rural road, lets explore

So pretty.

Oh no, what’s this? it’s been clear cut!

The horror

What this rural area REALLY needs is an extremely wide road. 2 lanes werent enough, we need 6!

Looking back

Government Sprawl

According to the newspaper, the state is broke. The county is broke. The city is broke. Teachers are being laid off because there’s no money for schools.

But in Fresno, a beautiful orchard is much too appealing for development. It doesn’t matter that there’s no money. It doesn’t matter that there is plenty of space elsewhere. It doesn’t matter that there are no homes nearby.

It’s an orchard, and it’s of monumental importance that it be torn down and replaced with a cookie-cutter school.

What was.

What is.

Full ground-level tour tomorrow.
