Ha, Ha. That's good, I've been mulling your idea over for a day or two, just simply for the latent energy which it contains.
The recent response by >alcassdan< finally galvanized in me what I believe may be a fitting contributional response:
Along with the Grapes of Wrath, soup kitchen, etc. that you have so colorfully described, how about some other dimensions of our fair town as well?
How about the pompous artisans, and construction people such as myself, proudly posing with their power tools and pickup trucks in freshly pressed Carhart regalia?
Or the successful tech industry types with their hybrid cars and PDA's at the ready?
Or the established professional, secretly pleased to be living in a "quirky" place, a place with a pulse at least...
Or maybe a dash of the succesfull retired types with bulging portfolios and immaculately groomed pets?
Family types?, I'm one of those, as well....maybe you are too..? Fill in the blanks...And line 'em up!
One thing we don't want to do is leave anyone out...business owners, did I forget you?
After all, this town belongs to all of us, right?
Let's just say, for once, NOT only in Niles!
