Another tax isn't the answer

Friday, January 9, 2009

To the Editor:

Golly Gee!

What a great idea -- tax every man, woman and child in Putnam county five to seven dollars to improve Ashley Square Cinema.

Just recently, I was lamenting the fact that I was only using my tax money to help AIG, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, General Motors, Ford, etal. I want to give more!

I would very much like to give more to our state representatives and senators for their retirement accounts. As of now, we only donate $4 to every $1 each legislator contributes.

I propose that each Putnam County citizen donate $5 to $7 to each Greencastle business. Frank Katris, owner of Ashley Square Cinema, is correct. "It could be an economic stimulus..."

At least for those businesses.

Better yet, I propose that every citizen donate to me. I need new flooring etc.

In return I'll give everyone a mess of green beans.
