Where the heck, indeed?

On Earth Day, I visited Greenlife—and there was Elaine Lite in a booth marked “Save Our Slopes.” I stood there, incredulous, staring at giant photos of mudslides covering peoples’ homes, yards and streets.

“Where the heck is that?” I asked, glad that it wasn’t my neighborhood. Since then, I know better. The super-rich build on the ridge tops and the folks down below catch the mud. Today it’s somebody else’s neighborhood, and tomorrow it’s mine—or yours. I’m opposed to overdevelopment, and that’s why I’m voting for Elaine Lite.
