Thanks to the City Council, there is absolutely nothing to prevent the
University of Idaho, Washington State University, or (worse yet) that
four-year junior college in Boise from purchasing a building (or two or

downtown Moscow, Idaho.  The voices claiming that Moscow is non-growth

Friendship Square is renamed "The Quad".

but it may be the one I leave.

My sympathies, Moscow.
