Getting to work...

In a previous post I said that after the election it was time for us to really get to the issues impacting us and not start worrying about 2008.

Well, the election is over, so let's get to work.

First on my list...

I work overlooking Red Arrow Park. This means that each year I have the pleasure of watching a very large truck, a crane, several city or county workers and a number of police officers all dedicated to erecting and tethering into place a Christmas Tree in a spot that looks as if a tree should be growing there naturally anyway. While I'm fairly certain the tree is donated, I imagine all the associated costs of transporting it into town and allocating resources to standing it up would be unnecessary IF SOMEONE WOULD JUST PLANT A TREE!

It's a shame that this year's tree just went up this morning and not earlier in the week. That way, this little gripe I have every year about this time could have been shared with Scott Walker, who graced us with his presence at last night's Drinking Right.

Oh well...

I've been wondering the same thing....why don't they just plant the bloomin' tree? It is a park fer petes sake, it's suppose to have trees.

Clearly you're of the sordid sort of conservative who want to take the very bread from the mouths of the driver of that large truck, the crane operators, several city or county workers, and a number of police officers who would have to scramble for donuts elsewhere under your cost-cutting scheme. Tsk tsk.
