Wheeler has a mother lode

The Wheeler Opera House wants the city to purchase the Mother Lode restaurant for $3.25 million to enable future expansion.

Here’s a slightly cheaper and more immediate idea for a Wheeler expansion – remove a row or two of seats, so as to provide some decent legroom.

I can’t imagine that the economy section of Aeroflot could be a more uncomfortable sitting experience for anyone over average height. When it comes to putting patrons in seating agony, the Wheeler already has the mother lode.
