Jackie, I hate to interfere with your carefully crafted little fantasy but 
as a public utility it is my understanding that GTE was indeed tax exempt 
and if you think that its employees did not utilize the Jackson street lot 
it's clear you didn't live in Moscow at that time. GTE had a right to 
utilize parking in that lot and when the building was sold to NSA that right 
went with it. It seems clear that you don't care much for the current crop 
of businesses that have sprung up downtown, perhaps you could suggest a few 
that would be more to your liking? Maybe a tin foil hats boutique? Or, maybe 
a chemist who specialized in industrially sized containers of 
chlorpromazine, haloperidol and thioridazine? Perhaps you could invest some 
of your own resources and do something more in keeping with you and your 
friends values in the CBD. Or you could continue to lurk, spy,  and 
complain. Of the two, I suspect the latter.
