    Are We Having Fun, Yet?

    I just received the City of Asheville’s newsletter. I must admit, I am happy I don’t live there now, as I do not crave entertainment as much as leadership believes citizens ought, and even if I did, I disapprove of government using its iron claw to pay for it,…

    Irony: Small Is Beautiful

    I was feeling sorry for myself this morning for some demented reason. All the intelligent people had gone to the ball, and I was left at the office with the dog. Then, I remembered that it is good to be small. Not always, but often people climb the power ladder…

    Government Needs a Haircut

    Ads running on the radio tell us the amazing NC Connect Public Improvement Bond will give government money without raising taxes. Well, if debt service doesn’t increase, they aren’t going down. I think I will be voting agin’. School upgrades are nice, but there are too many people working…

    The Needy

    The Cost of the New Service

    The Henderson County Board of Commissioners agreed to cancel sheriff’s services for the Town of Mills River. They mercifully agreed to extend the contract for a year. In response, town leadership asked their constituents if they would rather have garbage pickup or police service. General Statutes require incorporated local governments…

    Nother PSA

    Mark Barrett at the Asheville Citizen-Times just tweeted there will be a Moral March to the Polls in Asheville this Saturday. In case you haven’t updated your lexicon, “moral,” when capitalized, means the Reverend William Barber. This event is planned by Democracy NC and the NC NAACP. Educate yourself. Educate…
