Twas two weeks before Christmas


A Column by the Editor
web posted December 14, 2009
COLUMN – T’was two weeks before Christmas and all through house, not a creature was stirring, except Mickey the Mouse. County issues were hung on the taxpayers backs, while Monroe was hoping not to catch any flack.

The Calliham property has now been put to bed, while visions of change orders and costs overruns swirl through Ken and Bettis’ heads. They both had a smile as they laid their heads in their laps, while laughing at Monroe, Willie and Norman for being such saps. 

Though the truth came out and caused quite a clatter, Ken and Bettis said, “don’t worry, it don’t’ matter. Just spend the money, you can hide the whole truth. We’ll have lunch at the Grill, we’ll save you a booth.”

The costs are so high, as the numbers did show. But the master so said, “Who cares, nobody knows. Don’t worry you saps, don’t have any fear. The dumb voters will forget by the elections next year.”

On Monroe, Willie, and poor Norman Dorn. On Mickey on Reid, Boss Hog said through his horn. Your loyalty rests on doing what you’re told. So what if everyone knows that you’ve been bought and sold.

Out in the distance is Mickey the Mouse, typing away in his dark little house. Doing the bidding on his irrelevant blog, with hopes of impressing Monroe, piglet and big old boss hog.

“I’m a good boy, just look what I do. I’d sell my soul just to be liked by you.” He types away types away within his four walls, “I will tell lies to everyone, each one and all.”

Then out in the public, everyone did see. The truth was delivered, “Oh no, this can’t be”. No one should know of the new taxpayers’ gift, huge costs and debt that might cause a big rift.

“Don’t worry my friends,” Hog said with a smile. “We’ve done it before we can do it again. The people are used to this kind of bile.”

“So dash away dash away, one and all. Just do as you’re told, I will protect you next fall.” The subjects all gathered in a tight little group, “Can we do this, is it possible, are the people are such dupes?”

“Yes it is possible,” Hog said with firm scorn. “The voters continue to elect you and lightbulb Norman Dorn”. “He’s right,” they said as they gathered together. “We can sock them with debt and blame it on others forever”.  

So as Christmas approaches and gift giving is near. You should hide your wallet, because the machine is in overdrive gear. The truth is forbidden, as are all of the ties. And you will be paying for all of the lies.

Merry Christmas from the veterans of the County Council, and their controllers.
