Note to Joshua Fusselman

U of I senior Joshua Fusselman should check his facts before submitting any more letters to the editor ranting against urban sprawl like the one that appeared in today's Moscow-Pullman Daily News.

For example:
A development just west of the border featuring Lowe’s with total retail space of 600,000 square feet is about to be built. All of the sales tax will go to Pullman.
Uhhh, what? From your lips to God's ears, Joshua. Unfortunately, we'll never see a dime of that sales tax money in Pullman.
Another commercial development up to 1.5 million square feet featuring a Wal-Mart Supercenter is planned for the east side of town.
1.5 million square feet? Really? What else is going in there? No plans have been announced. That's four times larger than the Palouse Mall. Are you sure about that?

I kinda liked the Moscow rant in last night's Daily News, complaining about urban sprawl west of Moscow. Funny, the writer never mentions the urban sprawl east of Whitman County.

There seems to be a complete lack of comprehension that there is life beyond the state line. I've got news for Moscow liberals, the world does not revolve around Moscow, Idaho.
