The Gainesville Times editorial staff has to please a huge audience. From time to time, that audience is too narrow to matter.

This Sunday our local newspaper went beyond that narrow audience. Will it matter? No, it won’t. The editorial was simply about the non-crimes committed by GOP legislators under the Gold Dome. They might as well have written a story about a trip to Mars taken without leaving the barn. An out of body experience driven by drugs would be a story in Hall County.

But, very few people care about politics, corruption, or transparency in government. Hall County residents would rather strip nekkid and sleep in a septic tank than get involved with … local politicians.

And that’s the problem with government. No rational person would sleep in a septic tank or rub elbows with someone willing to live in a septic tank.
