    Why is Pam Osgood still getting paid? It doesn’t make sense to keep her employed full time does it?

      @old2fat-Damn good question. Why do we need all of the other staff out there either if there are no planes going out or coming in?

    True, but at least we have a brand new 500.000 snow plow in case we do!
    And the fire dept has a new 1.000.000 fire truck to fight our new high rise fires!
    And our police dept has a new Urban assult vehicle for all our urban unrest!

      Will anyone ever vote, though, for change? The people of Mason City asked for this, and they got it.
