I didn't post this last week, but here's my latest column from the Belgrade News. It had a Halloween theme. (Cue the Addams Family theme song.)
Here's the opening graf: "Halloween is almost here. Jack-o-lanterns, orange and black decorations, full moons, and wee ones dressed in superhero and gypsy costumes never get old. Alas, if only my observations about Oct. 31 could remain lighthearted. But tough financial times mean cutting back on the whimsical and getting serious, or, at least, combining the two strains of thought."
I go on to discuss federal transportation grants, free trade agreements, occupy movements, and government pensions.
