Perhaps an odd million dollars or so isn't important to our Democrats

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Not since Foghorn Leghorn quit the Saturday morning cartoon lineup has one witnessed such fine examples of bluster, comic inflection and scratching in the sand as are on display at meetings between the Belknap County Commissioners and the Belknap County Delegation. Democrats are half right when they conclude that this dust-up is about power and not money. Perhaps an odd million dollars or so is inconsequential to the entitlement crew but some delegates do not agree. Accountability of those in power is part of the equation as is wise use of the people's money.

As to the "news" value of the commissioners' lawyers allegedly agreeing with themselves, this startling if somewhat solipsistic assessment caused me to do my own reality check. I inquired of my favorite Bichon Frise as to the state of affairs domestic; he assured me that I am a fine fellow indeed. I should say that settles the issue once and for all.

Rep. Richard B. Burchell
Belknap District 5
