Relax everyone, nothing's going to be getting blown up! I have it on very good authority that an injunction against blowing the 'stacks will be filed on behalf of the thousands of Mexican residents living directly across the river from the demolition site. In addition, Mexico's President, Enrique Peņa Nieto, is being petitioned to take a stand against the demolition until the safety of areas residents, on BOTH sides of the border can be assured. If nothing else, the demolition may just be delayed until later in the year, when the predominant winds blow from the south.

BTW, I'm also hearing quiet discussions about staging an "Occupy the Smokestack" protest. Work is underway now to secure the appropriate masonry anchors, perhaps even chemical bolts, so supporters can chain themselves to the structure, both in AND around the base. Others will be climbing the structure and positioning themselves on several of the in-place ladder structures.

This all may take several more months, years, maybe to get ironed out.

Kinda like tree huggers right. Where do I sign up and when we need to make a plan. Like try and hire some people with guns acros the river to help out. Wait thats not a good idea they aren't allowed to own them over there? Since I don't work and the protesting business like the rest of the economy has hit the skids I haven't had much to do since I can't get a job around here. I don't speak spanish to well.

One idea would be to use the interest that GM paid to the treasury in order to finance this. Per James Russell, GM has paid back the loan in full with interest so that should more than cover the cost of this demolition. That way it will be a win/win deal. Beto should look into this as it is a fabulous idea.
I am hoping

When they take the time to set the charges they are going to have to close off West Paisano to prevent collateral damage. Years ago when they decided to take out a smaller stack and replace it with the Tall stack it fell wrong and blocked BNSF rails and The west bound lanes of Paisano totally for hours. Had it fallen toward the south it would have filled the American Canal. There will be one place the public can watch and that will be from the UTEP upper parking lot across from the box office area where the wet back would crawl through. Excellent viewing at 6:00 AM.
