This is what Barnidge says about Mr. Coyote–and about the RAMPART folks:
When a missile launcher failed to propel him to his target, he hopped onto a rocket sled. When a stick of dynamite couldn’t stop his prey, he reached for a hand grenade. When the boulder he dropped didn’t flatten the bird, he tried again with an anvil.
Sure, he was a failure, but you need to look past that. He was a study in relentless tenacity.
The only force we’ve ever seen rival his gritted-teeth perseverance is the group trying to derail the Neiman Marcus project, even as the Walnut Creek City Council beep-beeps its way toward welcoming a new store to Broadway Plaza.
