Relax Portland: Aerial Tram Project Solved!
The Portland Freelancer has gone where no other media outlet in Portland has come close: A solution to the tram boondoggle that would cover us in glory and financial reward, and honor our heritage all at the same time:
The two bus-like, tram gondolas should look like covered wagons with statues of Lewis and Clark sitting up front. Not only do we enhance the amusement park aspects of the tram, but we make the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Celebration a lasting part of our great city. I don’t think we’ve honored these gentlemen nearly enough. Did you know that 200 years ago this week the expedition was in Fort Clatsop? We have got to capitalize on that. Thanks to the tram, there’s still time. With the proper level of creativity, we can turn this project from a civic crisis into a shining Rose City victory! Darn, if we could only get more money in the budget for some plastic horses.
