RE: OLD RIVER = NEW RIVER

A fine-print-reading, hope-dousing FrontBurnervian notes,

But notice the caption – this is not a drawing as Dallas was, but rather an artist’s rendering of a “Trinity River Project” of 113 years ago. Add a sailboat or two, and it’s just as fanciful as our current propaganda.

The beauty of the Trinity River, should we conclude, exists perennially, but only in the imagination?

On another note: does anybody know the function of the pier-like structures that project from the top of the levee high above each tributary? And who’s in charge of maintaining them, whatever they are?
