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."
