Not the Tooth Fairy

Editor:

When the economy is not doing too good, we have to tighten our purse strings.

I guess that does not apply to the city of Danville.

I just heard the city spent $86,000, or was it $87,000, on flowers this year. Yes, they are pretty. Is it going to bring more people to Danville?

I would think if they used that money and hired a few more policemen to catch the bank robbers and the people going around shooting other people that would be more of an incentive to move to Danville.

Or maybe the new road planter-dividers on Vermilion, Fairchild and Logan will bring more people here.

Oh, I forgot, that was “grant” money. And where does “grant” money come from? Not the tooth fairy.
