Notice how they're so damned "good for the economy", because they "provide TAX DOLLARS". Those would be Your tax dollars and mine. And legitimately speaking, more from those with less; I may be an archconservative, but one can't deny that the poor and the hardworking are the ones thoroughly screwed, by bright ideas like this. Understand...We Will Have To PAY, out of pocket--which is where all expenditures deadend--for this granny glasses, Pete Seeger banjo-thumping, you're a flower and you're a tree and all of us are each other,*feces*. That's what it is, Woodstock Port-a-John feces. It's dung. It's manure. And, it's silliness.
And, it should be put to referendum, Not decided upon by Councils and their friends down at Lancaster's. The populace of B/N, should vote on it, each and every one of us...failing that, a bond issue, UNsubsidized by whomever doesn't want it. This--like the monstrocity of a hotel in DOWNTOWN Normal, I notice we were never asked our opinion about *that* one, either--is too big an issue. It's too big, it's too big...and well-heeled local pols, the 2nd most insidious of whom occupies an Appointed office, Do Not have the right, the privilege, no, nor even the "responsibility", to decide for the rest of us. They owe us Only Their Industry. If we want their judgment, we'll ask for it.
...oh, and just a personal observation? "Empire St.", though it may technically extend out into a galaxy far, far away, No One truly thinks of as "Empire St.", once you pass the airport. Not even the good people who live there, who as far as I'm concerned, live in Arrowsmith.
