I doubt rationing TP is going to make a dent in the $297 million budget deficit. Let's get real here!

I agree and why are inmates getting more than 3 rolls a week each? Instead of hiring plummers to unclog the toilets they messed with, make the inmates reach down there bare-handed and unclogg it.

That should save at least some taxpayer money shouldn't it?

What... No comments on the County Execs proposed bathroom??? That's gotta factor in somehow! We're talkin' triple-ply at the very least here.

toilet paper is NOT going to help the decficit..... larger issues need to be dealt with than toilet paper.. Yes why are they getting more than 3 rolls anyway... not one person should need more than 2 a week at the very most.. sounds like a poor management job to me...wasteful

Can I wipe my *** without asking for tissue? How stupid is that?
Toilet paper is the least costly item of their worries. How about they stop allowing their officials to spend hundreds of dollars on meals and calling it "a business expense". How about they stop letting these people use money on buying the latest computers and hardware and copiers and allowing employees to make long distance phone calls. How about that? You are getting too personal with the TP!

So the inmates are deliberately using TP to clog the toilets? Solution - don't unclog the toilets; perhaps if they have to spend time living in their own filth, they might stop acting like trash?

Well since they are growing more corn for fuel. Let them use a corn cobb like in the old day's!

I'm sure the Mayor of District Heights will like that idea! ;)

Now that is a good idea. They do eat good with our tax money so we should have a say to this.

Well, if they cut the firefighters from working so much overtime in the county, allowing them to sometimes double their annual salary, then maybe there will be more money for toilet paper. But it's all crap to me.

I agree with feeding them less, they will poop less.

TP ...hmmm why don't they put that self important bozo the self proclaimed 'Energy Lawyer' roger berliner the democratic dope from potomac/bethesda on the TP case.

what does an energy lawyer do, sue Ready Kilowatt or protect the people from that harlet miss utility? what an azzhole...

which immentantly qualifies him to fix the TP sunami forming upstream of the falling sky.

MC council= moronic misfits
