  1. Isn't that nice that they provide temporary housing for these people who already have outstanding arrest warrants? Why I was talking to the Missus just the other day about this nice way we rotate housing between the rooming houses and the prison, its awfully cold out there and they can get showers at the prison before they come back to the rooming houses. Its kind of a shame though that they might clamp down on those blighted houses in three or four years, going to cause a housing shortage that is. But at least we don't have to worry about that much for the next few years as that nice Town Manager isn't in a big yank about enforcing any of those shiny new ordinances that those pesky left-wingers on the Selectboard got passed.

  2. It's more shameful the drug use and abuse goes unchecked, because the druggies have more rights than the police! Springfield isn't safe anymore.
