Wishful Thinking Dept.

Pressing ahead with its highly tasteful High-End Marine-Grade White PVC Holiday Display (first reported here in July), the Loudoun Board of Supervisors’ Finance Committee last week voted to allocate $4,000 of your tax dollars to this worthy cause to help save Leesburg and surrounding areas from the terrible threat of having no celebration of Christmas at all unless government provides it.

Who could possibly laugh at this? (After all, it’s made of High-end Marine-grade PVC, guaranteed to store conveniently and last multiple seasons)

Chairman Scott York (R-Hounds), adding his own decorator touch to the earlier lengthy shopping research of the Courthouse Lawn Committee, however moved to have the county splurge and replace the 2-D Santa and Sleigh cutout earlier chosen by the committee with the full 3-D model (see right).

Supervisor Ralph Buona (R-Ashburn) declared that replacing the chaotic citizens’ displays of recent years with the official government-chosen and approved tribute in PVC to two government-selected religions will ensure that Loudoun is no longer “the subject of national ridicule.”

Don’t count on it!
