Rants and Raves for December 27

To the three ranters who obviously believe that the only thing correctly said comes from them. You are the "vocal minority" that resist any change to the historic district for betterment of all of the city. While you may think that Tifton has enough "banks and lawyers," we all know that delapidated, bat-ridden, run-down, do-nothing buildings that are neither aesthetically pleasing or historic, just old and falling. Any money that may come from historic entities comes with unreasonable guidelines. Change is coming! Help out or move out!

••••••••

The Historic District supporters take me back in time – to 1969. "Love it or leave it." "The silent majority supports us." "They are just making trouble." Richard Nixon arises again. There are citizens outside your historic bubble. City government should not be involved in your petty complaints. The city should not do Internet and TV, airport, historic real estate, factory speculation and theater giveaways, and then fail miserably and raise our taxes because of it. Thank you very much.
