Where’s the hope?

Dear Editor:

Terrific, the Obama administration is now taking its cues from right here in Happy Valley! The plastic bag tax (oh, wait, not a tax, let’s call it a fee … a tax would be bad form) now begets a Christmas tree tax (err, I mean fee), so the government can get involved in yet another thing they have no business getting into: the promotion of trees. Great, as they are so good at doing these kinds of things.

Are you fully fed up with this administration yet, or are you still waiting for the hope and change to kick in?
