Johnston, RI — Home of Landfills and ????

For those of you from RI, or who have lived in or near RI for a period of time, a recent article has Donald Trump wanting to build a casino, in, of all places, Johnston, RI.

I don’t know if words can do this story justice. One of my favorite quotes from the article:

”This would be the largest commercial interest besides the central landfill, and, unfortunately, that’s what the town is more or less known for”

Has Trump lost his mind?

“more or less known for”? What else could Johnston possibly be known for? Contempo maybe.

Yet, last time I went to Contempo it was a shadow of its former self. Where’s Roger to make great ice coffee? I think Johnston, as a city and motif, can only go up in prestige– even if a grubby casino goes up. Are two landfills better than one?
