Rattlesnake Bridge (by Simon Donovan)

Readers Pick

Simon Donovan's Rattlesnake Bridge is a perfect place for a secret rendezvous. You can hide in plain sight while your quiet whispers are drowned out by the sound of the passing traffic below. You're deep in the belly of the beast, so to speak. This marvelous piece of functional art, or artistic architecture, has become one of the symbols of Tucson. Unfortunately, the city is letting this architectural treasure fall into disrepair. A recent visit showed that scumbags have desecrated our big snake with all kinds of graffiti. Helloooo?! City Council? A little pride here? Let's get this important local landmark cleaned up!
