BEAM IN NEWS AND OBSERVER’S EYE

The News and Observer seems upset Senator Brown got $10 million into the budget for Jones County schools. Same newspaper wants the Triangle region to suck billions out of taxpayers to build their toy train set aka light rail.

All the property in rural Jones County isn’t worth $800 million.

Property values in Wake, Durham and Orange Counties exceed $170 billion or over 170 Jones Counties.

So who needs the help? A rural school district or the Triangle Choo Choo that will gush red ink every time it leaves the station? The News and Observer should remember the Bible’s caution against criticizing the speck in your neighbor’s eye while ignoring the beam in your own.
