I was in downtown Burlington Friday.
Driving up Jefferson St. I passed by salvation. There was a young man at the corner of 5th & Jefferson almost out into the intersection. He was waving a Bible while yelling about doom and salvation.
I can think of no better place to peddle salvation amidst doom than across from the crumbling, abandoned J. C. Penney store.
Until the second coming, downtown Burlington's latest great hope of salvation remains urbane residential development.
