I wish, I wish, I wish! How I would wish to write like Mr. Sales. I’ve got the facts. I’ve got the figures. I’ve even got the history. All the tools at my disposal.
But I haven’t the prose. His editorial is so fine, I’m thinking of framing it.
And his solid reasoning takes my breath away.
We’ve had some locals who are trying to say that because they are on the right and pro-business that somehow the local historic district ordinance is something that a socialist created. Considering the large amount of LHD’s across the country (over 2300) and most of the country leans to the right; not only have they jumped on the wrong horse, it’s fully dead!
But getting back to Mr. Sales, his writing would make that venerable capitalist, Adam Smith, of the Wealth of Nations fame, be very impressed!
My case has been stated, over and over again, that the local historic district ordinance is the key to our economic success – not only does it help in securing our future, it brings a high quality of life with it.
Now, I’m nervous – Mr. Sales might take up blogging and blow my doors off!
