KBXE and that Big Hole

The Hole
by Steve Downing

            It’s a big hole, certainly. Big enough to swallow your car and much else besides. And yet not so big, when you realize that a five-hundred foot tower is going to rise up out of this hole, with all of its deadweight tonnage and the down-and-outward stresses of the buttressing wires and their anchors.
            The truest significance of the hole is simply that it’s there. It’s been dug. It’s ready. You were pretty sure KBXE was going to happen when the studio renovation started. Now: you know.
