These things happen

The current state of the Halifax County Courthouse renovation project is emblematic of our times: taxpaying citizens of the county are stuck with a plan that no one seems to like and no one is apparently able to change. How do these things happen? Pull up a chair and let’s stew a bit.

At some point, one is forced to conclude the Mecklenburg County Board of Supervisors will do whatever is necessary to avoid doing the necessary.

To wit, this gem: “The fact that Terry McAuliffe represents everything that’s wrong with today’s Democratic Party would make me tempted not to vote for him … except for the fact that his opponent represents everything that’s wrong with today’s Republican Party.” (Booman Tribune, “Virginia is for Intrigue,” http://www.boomantribune.com)
