It’s long been known why so many yankees move further South, because they’ve about destoryed the quality of life in their old places of residence.  Yet, too often, it seems as soon as they’ve settled into their new areas, they start the same cycle all over again.  I simply do not understand that, only to say that’s a yankee for you.

This new poll showing displeasure with high taxes, poorly run schools and overcrowding should be of interest to our local elected officials who think it’s OK to keep raising taxes without a thought to the long term damage that usually results in such politics.    That’s not to say don’t raise taxes at all, but it’s obvious that it’s a lot easier to keep doing that then it is to keep costs under control.
