City Government (Not Ours) Abandons Ship

You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone

For all the complaints about government, whether it be heavy-handed, ineffectual, or some blend of the two, it’s good to know that somebody is at the helm.

Disagree? Consider this story, about a small New York town where its government has essentially abandoned their posts. State laws generally require a quorum to conduct even the most mundane city business, and this town doesn’t have it.

I suppose many of us have fantasized about walking off the job at some time or another. One of those “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it” moments. I don’t know if that’s the case with these public servants, but that’s what I like to imagine.
