Councilman Targets Story Time

Story time? Really, Councilman Fagan? The next time you hear the government-phobes launch the script about crushing taxes and runaway waste, remember Spokane City Councilman Mike Fagan and his insights into the city’s library system, offered during the passionate debate Monday night about the city’s budget. Story time. That was one of Fagan’s examples of a world gone mad – of government overreach that must be reined in. Story time. Programs on genealogy. Monthly movie nights. All these nonessential services that the city’s library system is offering. “This is one of the reasons why government in my mind has gotten out of control,” he said. “This is crazy. It has way gotten out of control.” Out of control! Crazy! Completely, crazily lacking in control!/Shawn Vestal, SR. More here.

Question: What types of "fluff" do you think government should underwrite?
