There's an upside to seeing double in Falls
But today, the Beacon Journal is reporting that the Falls has received a new $1.135 million grant from the Federal Highway Administration that opens the vault for a a long-delayed State Road project.
As you know, the Tea Party embracing Republican mayor ("the fiscal and moral conscience of America,"' he once greeted them) has not had anything good to say about Federal spending and budget deficits and all, and here his town is with all that money arriving from Uncle Sam.
I know, again. It will be argued that the project has been delayed for six years so the Falls has waited long enough to take a bite out of the Federal treasury.
Still, I wouldn't be surprised that the mayor is in Romney's quiet room (where Mitt believes only politically sensitive things should be considered) and happily humming the old Bill Monroe Bluegrass favorite, "Roll on, Buddy....Roll on."
