Waynesville’s aldermen decided to spend $5000 bequeathed to the town to make a quilt on the sidewalk. What did I say about blowing out one ear the money sucked in by the other? That seems like a Caligulan way to honor the dead. It is sad that the latest donor is not the only person who feels so sorry for spendthrift government, they are leaving it more money and power. The fungible funds will be used to create more propaganda to whine about how government can’t cover basics while quilting sidewalks.
