Better late than never

Months and months ago, my Friends of Red Bridge friends Sharron and Teresa, and I were telling Cathy Jolly about the story of our campaign against a massive new bridge slated to be built in the heart of southern Kansas City's most beautiful parkland.

The volume and detail of what we were telling her was overwhelming. Even I felt that. Cathy must have, too, because she asked if we had kept a diary.

No, we hadn't , we confessed.

“Please start”, Cathy said, and we all realized we should. But the usual procrastination and preoccupation with stuff that has to be done NOW kept us from it.

Well, no longer.
