From Eric Sanford on 12/9/13…
I went and had a visit with my old buddy Fred last week.
“You know,” he said, “this guy wanted to name something in the Gorge for me. You know, put up a monument or something. I told him I didn’t want no stinking monument! But he went ahead anyway and contacted the State to find out what he would need to do to put up a Fred Noble monument somewhere.”
“Well,” he was told, “the first thing you need is for the guy to be dead.”
“Dead??? Why does he have to be dead?”
“You can’t put up a monument or name anything in the State after someone who is alive,” he was told.
“So he came back to me and said, ‘Well Fred, I guess you get your wish. I can’t put up a monument until you’re dead.’ ”
Now personally I don’t think this is very fair. Indeed, I believe it is downright prejudice against living people – certainly one of the largest segments of our population. [Are you politicians paying attention???!!]
So Debbie and I decided that we needed not one, but LOTS of Fred Noble monuments around the Gorge. The State. The country. The world!
So attached are just a FEW of the millions of Fred Noble monuments, plaques, shrines, markers and memorials we have been placing THROUGHOUT THE WORLD! (It’s a PDF with many photos, not just one.)
It’s the least we could do. The very least….
