Harrisburg Happening

I've had it

If you are wondering why I haven't posted for a while . . .. it's because I have had it - with Reed, with lawsuits, with development plans that never pan out, with unplowed streets, with layoffs and petty fights, with pie-in-the-sky budgets that don't allow any room for error.

Goodbye Harrisburg - I'm heading south

Oh come on now Anniken! Don't act the part of the quitter. Leave for a real reason: Winter bites!

Did anyone see the Mayor's latest "Reed Team?" This man's authoritarian bent is ridiculous. What a control freak!

I want debate on Council. I want disagreement with the Mayor. I want compromise and solutions.

It's called Democracy people, snap out of it.

A real Democrat does not go along with the party for the sake of the party. Thinking for yourself is not dead in Harrisburg, I have hope.

Everyone is tired of fighting, but it sure beats subserviance to the will of others and the tax dollar hole this city is becoming.

Yeah Anniken; Don't leave now, the party has just begun! Change is in the wind, I can smell it! Have faith, good things are coming our way. Savannah may be wonderful now, but I remember it as a one horse town, pretty depressing in the 70's and 80's. Give the Burg some more time, finally there is activity, and no thanks to Mayor Reed and his bickering with Council. Stay here and keep him honest, I alway enjoy your intelligent perspective on the "Harrisburg Happenings". P.S. No, Mr. Darnell's little demon curse didn't work on me! I'm still very much alive and more than an little sick of the nonsense from the posters on PL.

I don't have the patience. It's been 22 years.

Glad the 'curse' didn't work. Ha Ha. Most of the time the guy sounds rational, then he goes off on some weird irrational course. Check the thread I had with him on publishing and his theory on Cherokee Indians and African-Americans. He was absolutely convinced I was out to steal his copyright to history. (No, there's no such thing.)

Yeah, forget what I said. I was in Savannah recently. Wow! What a town.

Isn't it the most amazing town? We've been visiting since we accidently stopped there during a trip back from New Orleans. That was in 1999. You won't believe how much change there has been since then - shopping, stores, cultural events and besides, it's just plain drop dead gorgeous.
