Good grief, a new tax?

By From page A6 | June 12, 2014

Front-page headline in Sunday’s edition of The Enterprise: “City eyes another tax measure.”

Good grief.

The result of the recent plebiscite on Measure O is not even yet certified and a new money grab is underway.

Prince Hamlet, sir, you have seen a hasty marriage between your mother and your uncle following your father’s death. Any comment on this tax matter?

“Oh, God! A beast that wants discourse of reason would have waited longer.”

And Governor Willie Stark: What say you, sir?

“The Good Book says, ‘There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough: the grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough.’ But Solomon might have added just one little item. He might have just made his little list complete, and added, the politician who never stops saying, Gimme … gimme, gimme, my name’s Jimmie.”

Over to you, Jimmie Dan, Jimmie Rochelle, Jimmie Lucas, Jimmie Brett, Jimmie Robb, Jimmie Joe.

James Chaffee
