Small Versus Big Picture

My father was a very talented tactical Engineer who was also on the school board in the town I grew up in. The State offered to pick up 50% of the cost to build a new school so the local school board voted to build one but the local citizens were going to have to pay for the other 50%.

But of course every other town in the State decided to build a new school whether they really needed one or not. This appeared to be a great deal to the local folks who were mostly tactical doers but who did they think was really paying for the States 50%? They were as the locals would pay their half in town taxes and the other half in State taxes!

And that is all I’m going to say about that!
