When You're Feeling Blue About Merrimon Avenue...

... Come on down Patton toward West A! We have a stunning array of architectural landmarks, a festive lineup of fast food chains, miniature golf, pawn shops, dilapidated shopping malls and fascinating billboards. My all-time favorite feature being, none other than, Harry's American Indian statue, poised upon the hillside, ready to greet all passersby with a warm welcome...

Thanks, MF. I feel better already.

I keep waiting for that big ol' statue to get possessed by the spirit of some long-dead Sewali Indian and come marauding down the hillside, stomping on Jeep Cherokees and kicking the cruisers to the curb.

Ah, the Jeep Cherokee. What an ironic name for a motorized vehicle. I would very much like to see your vision come to light, Screwy.

(hey, i was a kid - little things like that excited me)
