Good column by Doug Thompson
of Stephens Media. He criticizes a proposal to provide a financial bailout to Benton County libraries.
The point? Unlike most counties in the state, the wildly prosperous county won't pass even a one-mill library tax. Why should others help Benton County if they won't help themselves? This is Rep. Donna Hutchinson's
steal-from-everyone-else-to-build-our-roads argument writ smaller. It's no more defensible.
