A building is going up at Fifth and Colorado. People are always asking me about things which block our view or will in the future. I'm most sad about the giant Texas flag that is actually pretty far away in the Texas State Cemetery east of IH35. I like seeing it there and...it tells me which way the wind blows. Since we are only on the tenth floor it doesn't take much height in a nearby building to block something from our view.
We get three daily newspapers. Two are produced all or in part at the Austin American-Statesman plant on South Congress beside Lady Bird Lake. Our friend Jackie recently took a tour. This shows a bundle of papers hurrying along the conveyor belt.
