Our thoughts...Bless you too

Monday night the Oxford City Council in their opening invocation led by Hoyt Oliver asked the "Guiding Spirit" to forgive us for criticizing their decision to waste the tax dollars of the good citizens of Oxford on expensive furniture from an out-of-town vendor.

We are pleased to see that the council still says a prayer to start their meetings. Political correctness these days prevents many councils and boards across the country from appealing to a higher power for guidance.

The members of this editorial board appreciate being included in the council's prayers. We seek the Good Lord's blessings any time and from whomever we can get them.

Now, we are going to return the favor: "Dear Lord, please forgive the gang of five that voted to squander Oxford's citizens' money because they are wasteful, obstinate and rancorous. Amen."
