If stores, hotels and other attractions are busy they hire more people, the service industry in the Berkshire can always supply a job or a few. People just need to realize they may have to make beds, ring a register or perhaps even wash pans but hey at least they will have a job.

How quaint. I bet you'll make them kiss your fanny and shine your shoes for their bowl of gruel.

All you businessmen can flock off and die.

Yeah! Let's all put on a show! Buck and shuffle and maybe the rich folks will give us money!

We could base the entire Berkshire County economy on show business!

And plow their driveways in the winter!

Great idea, Mickey!

But what happens when all the old folks (baby boomers?) who used to come to the Berkshires for summer camp die off? Then we'll be screvved!

The "skin flute" jokes would be more appropriate in the "Prominent Pittsfield Pedphile of the Week" section

"Two Resign Amid Probes". This is the family section. We are not amused.
