Dear Madame Zoltar
"Palenick marks 1st-year anniversary; sees 'bright' future for city" says the headline on the JournalTimes.com article [ http://journaltimes.com/news/local/palenick-marks-st-year-anniversary-sees-bright-future-for-city/article_90b97d46-4e66-564e-8a70-0adcd5b053dd.html#comments ]. As noted in the comments on the story, Mr. Palenick does nothing, but is paid handsomely. What does a "City Administrator" do? Why, he administrates, of course. Nice work if you can find it. Mr. Palenick, a Dickert pick, is locked in for two more years. Why does Racine get raped over and over? It seems as if all of the money ends up in private pockets. Foxconn will only facilitate this process. Poor Racine.
Mr. Trump continues to flabbergast hordes of people, left and right. He is the President of the United States, but he acts like a child. He has the perfect pout face. I wonder how long he had to work on that? He simply is not up to the job of being president. He tweets insults. What a twit.
My boys, however, are perfect, especially Señor Zanza. They can do no wrong in my eyes.
Have ypu driven past Pritchard Park lately? It looks like a bomb went off. Easily, 90% of the forest must have been ash trees. Now imagine this superimposed on the rest of the city. It's coming folks, sooner rather than later. We have no easy cure for the Emerald Ash Borer. The best we can do now is take down the infected trees. Racine will look utterly naked. Us and hundreds of other communities. Well, I've lived through two deforestations in Racine: the beautiful elm and the stalwart ash trees. Have any of our critters played havoc in other nations? I hope not, but I suspect so. We just can't handle our own success. And we're often trying to dominate the weather, which is impossible.
I see that Foxconn is moving right along entirely on government money. I don't think they have a penny invested yet. Just wait - we'll be halfway done with construction and they'll announce other plans. Thanks Racine County and Mount Pleasant, but no thanks. We'll see you on the flip side. Oh, I don't want to believe that this will happen, but I've got a tingling in my toes. The toes are never wrong, never. If Foxconn does poop on us, what can we do? Sue them? Ha! That would take a minimum of 10 years.
No, Foxconn has us dancing like unfortunate cowboys. So far, all we have are promises and other words from Foxconn. "Oops, we misspoke. So sorry. Goodbye." Poor Racine. We always get screwed. I know of no reason why this time should be any different.
Thank you to all of my loyal readers, I love each and every one of you. Keep the faith.
Enjoy the weather. It will still get plenty cool, but we're gaining every day. Thank God we get to see another spring.
