Awaits stories on good done by townships

Published: Saturday, March 30, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

I, for one, am getting very tired of the mini-series this paper is running demonizing township government. When can we expect to see a series on all the good things that happen with the tax money that those entities receive?

I’m sure that story is just around the corner, as all good newspapers tell both sides of the story.

With all the outright corruption and issues that help to make this state “worst in the nation,” is there really nothing better to dig into than the everyday ordinary operations of the only government agencies that operate in the black?

As “big government” continues to drive us to bankruptcy, my support will be for “small government” all day long.
