How to save Salida
You printed a brief letter from a “Laird Campbell” last month, but I don’t think Laird exists. I think you invented him, or her, to ask this question and draw knee-jerk responses from readers like myself. Clever.
“Laird Campbell” hit the nail in the head, in a way. Encasing Salida in amber is its only hope. Towns like Salida are destined to be museums, if only because nobody builds towns like this anymore.
