  • What happened to the totem pole?

  • Linc- good question! I hope that is camera fish-eye. Otherwise, somebody needs to bring a large crane and prop that baby back up.

    • Bug on a Windshield

      Crane? Heck, the fire crew are there with their big-boy ladder. Pay them to straighten it. They could use the dime. But, yea, probably fish-eye lens.

      Thank you all fire crew for doing the danger-pay jobs.

      • I’m surprised it hasn’t been removed, burned, or defaced since its offensive to someone, somewhere, somehow.
