"French Like Us"; Tales from Normal, Mn.; FICTION
Political pundits were shocked today in Normal, Mn. as France, and indeed Greece have effectively voted to overule the "austerity" budgets recently passed by legislators.....some pundits have said that many of the very wealthy in France are headed for Britain. Tax rates on the rich are anticipated to go up....maybe to Ronald Reagan levels I presume. Reagan must be smiling today watching over those politicos that thought that the budget could be balanced by taxing the indigent and homeless, all the while giving the super rich more tax breaks. Even the Great Communicator in his waning health knew better. In the very center of Normal, Mn., where a small Paul Bunyan statue had been for many years till it disintegrated, there has been erected a Ronald Reagan statue...Yes....there was a slight smile on the statue this morning. Stay tuned as I follow this story.
