Duct tape architecture of the Ark. Delta

--Monticello Live

Arkansas Blog state editor Donald Tuohey has been busy clipping Arkansas blogs for potential stories. And he came up with both a local blog worthy of checking -- Monticello Live -- and its recent report on a downtown building repair that followed the recent collapse of the facade of another building nearby. Joe Burgess wrote there:

After the collapse of the building on the east side of  the square’s south side, a temporary repair was noticed that had recently been applied to the building on the west end of that same row of building.

The tape appears to be Duct Tape, a product that is usually made of aluminum, and used in the air conditioning and refrigeration industry, and not the standard grade of “duck tape.”

But it is still a shining example of a potential problem.

Duct tape and WD-40. Need anything else for survival in Arkansas? Nah, except, of course, a 97-cent Miller quart from my neighborhood convenience store.

It's that time of a Friday, isn't it?

I should add: THE LINE IS OPEN
