Officials may have pinpointed slide's cause

A front-page article in today's Oregonian describes how new sprinkler system equipment may have been leaking and caused the Oct. 8 Burlingame Place slide.

The slide damaged six homes. One was demolished, and two others are beyond repair and three others have been deemed uninhabitable. Amazingly, no one was injured or killed.

The Oregonian story offers legal opinion that the probable solution now is for a small army of attorneys representing all the interests (including insurance companies and contractors) to sit down and figure out who pays how much to whom.

The story fails to report on the future of the closed stretch of Terwilliger Boulevard that is forcing hundreds of commuters to detour and is increasing traffic through the Hillsdale Town Center.
