Studies are pointless unless action follows!
Studies are pointless unless action follows!

It's not that we're smart enough already -- Heaven knows we're not! -- but there comes a time when another study is just another way to delay doing something.
In Franklin County, another study is not what the doctor ordered -- but some kind of action certainly is.
But, if we don't totally ban studies, at least we ought to demand that officials take some kind of action after spending thousands of tax dollars studying one topic or other.

Budget director speaks; dissecting the delusion

Brace yourself -- and let's take a look at perhaps the most stupid comment coming out of our federal bureaucracy in 40 years -- and that's saying something.

Rather than actually watch the demolition, unfiltered, through a window, his eyes are affixed to the television screen -- oblivious to the destruction occurring right outside his window.

It's all okay, just give everyone what they want

People want what they want, why argue? Is it not easier to just give them what it is they want?
I have often said, 'now I have heard everything.' Then something new and more outrageous over-takes it.
Recently someone sent me a story of a man allegedly killed trying to have sex with a 12-foot alligator. My initial reaction, well now that just cannot be true, turns out it was not.

Sad destruction of elegance

Dear editor:
I can remember many years ago when I was a candidate for Miss Franklin County that a lady (sponsor for pageant) from Louisburg took the candidates to the Simon Williams Mansion in Franklinton for tea and crumpets to be observed and interviewed for the title of Miss Franklin County.
