Over the past year or so, we have taken to watching the local news at 6 p.m. on tv. Nothing of any real importance or excitement is ever reported on the broadcast, in fact, most of the news is about stuff going on in Belleville. Primarily, we are watching it for a laugh.

Neither of us is particularly crazy about our current city council or the mayor. Last night, on the news, they ran a clip of the Mayor speaking at a Rotary Club luncheon. Harv was delivering his "State of the City" address to these folks. Apparently, the city is considering a tunnel for the third crossing. We had a good laugh about that. They keep putting off the third crossing. In 1964, 44 years ago, they realized that it was necessary but rather than do anything about it, the city keeps commissioning study after study. The tunnel suggestion should spark more debate and postpone the project even further.

I should probably be angry or disgusted but I continue to be amused instead. It's good to know that our council / mayor are good for at least one thing.
