Someone tell GeeGuy.

Released today, a decision by the EPA regarding coal-fired plants effectively halts any new approval until plants address carbon dioxide emissions.

Carbon dioxide is a pollutant – by law – and EPA’s previous refusal to apply “best available control technology” to its emissions is a violation.

With the City of Great Falls pushing forward, despite all of its legal problems regarding that coal-fired plant, and officials talking a pretty mean talk about “clean coal technology” even though currently there really isn’t “clean coal technology” makes this decision pretty important.

While Montana isn’t part of EPA’s Region 9, count me as one of at least two people that hopes this decision falls over to EPA’s Region 8.

i wonder what the gipper would think if he could see his precious “free” market captains of industry and rulers of the universe begging taxpayers for a bail-out mulligan?

oh well, let’s get our minds off this coming economic debacle for awhile and wax nostalgic about our favorite dearly departed businesses here in missoula and accross montana. i will kick things off by listing a few of my old favorites from Missoula:

  1. Alley cat- best damn steaks in montana alas they grill no more.
  2. Freddy’s feed and read- best book store ever and great deli too, but books are closed.
  3. Skip’s orange street station- great place for quick service. ugliest bldg in missoula now.
  4. Mammyth Cafe- great vegetarian chili, rolls and salads cheap. much grieved.
  5. Blackfoot Tavern- if you knew Bennie & Elaine, ’nuff said.
  6. Bitterroot Grocery- best smelling grocery ever. real oak wood floors.
  7. Affinitive Angler- brief but memorable
  8. Champion wood products- great paychecks and picnics. lousy environmental ethics.
  9. Blacksheep sporting goods- some great deals for the poor sportspeople.
  10. 93 stop N’ go- the house sparrows at tremper’s ace sure miss the french fries.

please stroll down memory lane with us and tell us about your favorite long gone and recently deceased businesses in montana.
