    Yeah my girl, she's one too, she'll go and get her a skirt. Stick it under her shirt, she grabbed a razor for me And she did it, just like that

    Oy vey! A local property rights group filed a mostly frivolous lawsuit against us that we've been wasting time responding to and appearing in court and now that same group filed another lawsuit demanding we release information on how much we've spent fighting their frivolous lawsuit. They also wrote a noteworthy op-ed about how we are wasting too much taxpayer money fighting their mostly frivolous lawsuit.

    If you'd just fess up, your insurance could pay them off and it wouldn't cost anyone anything.

    Being a manly man is painful sometimes. My chainsaw broke this weekend so I got all George Washington on a large cherry tree with an axe. Now my whole body hurts. Axing a tree is some hard work.

    Meeting with consultants today. I love spending money.


    I called our legal council the other day and got a bill yesterday for the .333 of an hour we spoke. The private sector is so different from the public sector. If I could charge a resident for how long they talked to me, we wouldn't be in this fiscal mess....

    What would happen is they would go ahead a do what they wanted to do, however they wanted to do it. Then you would spend tax dollars to fix it. But then again, you might be able to chrage them for all the time and effort to fix what they did.

    I don't think I'm actually going to get any "work" done today. Nothing but meetings and brainstorming sessions.

    I hate when one of my kids is sick. They're so loud all the time, but I would take that over them being sick any day of the week.
