Is Bomb-Making Austin's New Symbol?

RECEIVED Wed., June 22, 2005

Howdy folks,
    Is it just me, or does anyone else find it painfully ironic that our City Hall, the symbol of Austin, is flanked and loomed over by two massive boxes owned by CSC, a major defense industry contractor who moved there because we paid them megamillions to? What a trade ... Liberty Lunch for security central, music-making for bomb-making. Need we find a clearer symbol of where we're heading?
