(picture shown: not of expected Bass Pro Shop, but rather of the resort city planners neglected.)

I’m as guilty as everyone else. A year or so ago I was a perfect case report of civic apathy.

But if you’ll allow me to push all that to the side, really? Another Bass Pro Shop? Bass Pro shops are proving to be quite the scandal with regard to corporate welfare.

City officials courted/entertained  Bass Pro and them only, it appears. Other deals were ignored.

I don’t know if it’s too late now or not. I hope it’s not.
