Grand Finale

As Mama Wordbones and I were walking around Lake Kittamaqundi this afternoon we talked about the impending demise of the bell / flag tower on the pier. After hearing about the plans for its removal a couple of weeks ago we were sort of surprised to see it still standing.

That’s when we came up with what we thought was a great idea.

Why not rig the tower for a controlled demolition as part of the grand finale of the 4th of July fireworks at the lakefront this summer?

You know, sort of like they when they take down an old hotel in Las Vegas.

There are, no doubt, a million reasons why this is probably a bad idea but it could provide a fitting end to this Columbia icon and would probably be pretty cool to watch too.

Sorry to see it go, but I'm in on the demolition idea. What other landmarks will be lost?
