Asking a rhetorical question is one thing. But asking it with the benign expectancy of an answer, flavors it with bit of inanity.
Not getting an answer, Councilman Bill Bryan responds to it himself (Cherokee Tribune — June 9) by asking nine more questions. Heavens.
Had we realized the original question was genuine, we could have asked the mayor to form a committee to seek an answer. Another chapter for that legendary book, “Missed Opportunities In Great City Governance.”
It has to be difficult being a 58 cents an hour councilman while having to dodge the “always critical” groupies and “sleazebags” (Mr. John Beresford’s epithet of choice).
I can’t imagine what it would be like if the criticisms were coming from taxpayers.
