It’s been a few years since I was a regular at the Bethlehem Town Pool. Now that I read that they’re having a problem with people pooping in the water, I can’t say I’ll be back any time soon.
Meanwhile the rhetoric is heating up over Wemple Corners, a sprawling and ill conceived mess of townhomes, multifamily units, senior apartments and retail space planned for Route 9W. A small number of residents have shown up at public meetings to voice their concerns, but this is a runaway train that can’t be stopped.
So when is poop in the pool more than just poop in the pool? When it’s a metaphor.
