Green Grass and Heck 

Look outside the BW offices at Sixth and Broad on any given weekday, and you'll see all the signs of a workplace that's more fun than yours. There'll be laughing smokers, crying smokers, a few non-smoking lollygaggers, me, dangling from a tree limb, the staff Rouchameau loser scrubbing graffiti off the walls ... but what you won't see is landscaping, unless you consider moist cigarette butts a succulent. If you do, you're sick in the lungs and the head.

No one in particular can be blamed for the state of our sod. Laboring to keep a few square feet of water-grubbing grass alive in the middle of the desert doesn't make sense anyway--especially next to a busy punk rock club. So for this year's Green Issue, I'm proud to announce that BW has partnered with Jason Doran of Willowglenn landscaping to transform our post-apocalyptic wasteland into a beacon of Xeriscaping that will help lead downtown Boise into a new era of taking pride in actually looking like we're in Idaho. We'll keep the trees, but that tattered green toupee is on the outs, and not a moment too soon.
