Wait just a fuggin minute......

....Didn't I read here a few months back
that the CITY DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY for libraries???

That they were cutting back on staff and didn't have enough books??

This is typical 'smoke and mirrors' played by politicians.

Ray Charles was truly a great guy, I've always dug his music.

But what about what I stated above???

Does Tony V. have an answer?

Can you read? The library is funded by Mr. Ray's charitable foundation which he left his estate to.

That's nice. That's real nice.

Maybe you should open a library, too, then.

You can take your collection of 'Golden Books' there......LOL!!
