While in New Castle last week I ran into Voltaire and his friend Dr Pangloss. The following conversation took place between myself and Dr Pangloss; Voltaire seemed quite drowsy.
Myself: “So what brings you to our county?”
Dr. Pangloss: “We heard that your county, during this recession and falling property values and tax base, is still so optimistic that you have gone on a building spree.”
Myself: “Yes, our wise leaders seem to be very optimistic.”
