Just another neighborly day

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a neighborly day in the neighborhood—could you be my neighbor?

Hey, boys and girls, can you say “23-story high-rise eyesore in the middle of downtown Asheville?

Sure, ya can.

And boys and girls, can you say “Shame on Nathan (Conflict-of-Interest) Ramsey and the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners, Planning Board and City Council for selling out the public trust to the developers and special interests”?

Sure, ya can.

And finally, boys and girls, can you say “We will hold you accountable in the next elections for betraying the public trust and selling off the mountains for the carpetbaggers’ 30 pieces of silver”? Damn right we can.

Won’t you be my neighbor … (apologies to Mister Rogers)?
