met Forte through a piece the journalists published on-line.
It was on the Economy of a river town, the ups and downs.....from 1800 to the present.
He was shocked to find out they were also in Durango, hanging tight for over a year.
Forte proceeded to talk straight for five hours, about Flagstaff, about the environment and the
river with genome-like detail. This early morning, after his column was written,
they met at the bridge and started to run together......both were triathalon athletes.
Afterwards it was always the Durango Diner, almost religion!
It wasn't a greasy spoon but close.
