Boy, it’s good to see an old timey sock-it-to-em’ letter on the opinion page and not some government official’s news release.

Opening a business is a great undertaking. You gotta have deep pockets or good credit to stock a business.
Then you face the one and biggest problem, finding customers. It’s sorta like figuring which came first, the chicken or the egg. Seems like no one is hollering about the need for “jobs.” Sorta like old time movie facades – all for show with no substance.

Jumping over to another subject is John Lage’s comments regarding the loss of some freedoms we have long enjoyed. Elected officials sometimes find it a sign of modern times to strike down stuff we have been long accustomed to. To smoke or not and if so, where and where not. Which foods and drinks are too fattening for our children. Hiking up baggy pants has not been placed on the agenda, yet.

Be careful of what you ask for.
