It is being widely reported that an El Paso landmark, the Asarco Smokestack, at one time the world's tallest, will be demolished.
I, for one, would like to see it brought up to code and remain as one of our city's most impressive erections.
But the City government has taken a pass on it and Border Patrol doesn't seem to take seriously my idea of making it a sniper nest.
If the smokestack is to remain, a practical purpose will need to be found. Fortunately, I have a few ideas...
