Ralph Waggener comments: Beauty is in eye of beholder
Comments re: Reasons why Columbia may not qualify for Vibrant Cities
By Ralph Waggener
I just read Vonnie's reasons why not, I’d take wood over metal any day for looks and metal any day to last longer. Yes, we could do better, but it will take a change of heart from a lot of Columbia residents to demand that change and work themeselves to help make "Columbia Great Again"
I might of stole this from some politician.
Lady Bird Johnson had the great idea to put fences to hide unsightly Auto Junk Yards to keep them out of sight, problem is, it was not the large junk yards that looked bad. I could not wait to see West Somerset Wrecking Yard.
It to me was as exciting as the Washington Monument in D C , but not to Lady Bird, I guess.
It was the homes with 5 or 6 old cars or trucks setting around a house that was ugly; but well meaning legislation usually gets it wrong; well maybe it always gets it wrong.
In the name of ecology we have closed 23 gas station in our city; now we are paying for it with no competition gasoline or little to no competition!
It takes a village full of good hard working people to make a good village!
It take a Federal Government that is not bought off to insure legislation is for us, not who buys them! - Ralph Waggener
