      My comment was a reflection of a first impression. I, subsequently read a little more about the proposal. I don’t know, still. First, the building is valued at over a million. The town is letting it go for 100 thousand. Second, there was a special election where 80% of 8.6% of the eligible voters “overwhelmingly” approved the measure. ??

      There seem to be a few details missing. Was the building built in 1895? It looks like older Greek revivals from the early 19th century. If it were built earlier than the donation date, what was it used for before it was a library? Regardless, it is reminiscent of a temple – a contemplative place. It looks like museum. I don’t think it should be used for commercial purposes but if it is to be put to that use I definitely agree w/ Ms. Waxman. The building shouldn’t sold for a song. It should be leased.

      According to Gillian Kiley, there. Is a lot of support for selling off Providence Water. Charles Brunie’s Irritating question to Gina Raimondo at the right wing Manhattan Institute echoes in my head, “They’re selling assets off like crazy over in the Eurozone ‘thing’.” No one will be content until every public asset is sold off, it seems. I think Lincoln Steffens would have so much more to write about if he survived into this day and age.

      Now we’re onto cannabis monopoly give aways to people who used to arrest those who will now make them millionaires(uh, as the Projo article linked to by Will Weatherly quoted a patient, it’s cheaper to buy on the street and the street dealers are more honest. How predictable). Philistine is too kind a word it seems.

    a simple joy of happyness:

    A child nuzzles against a Mom.

    the simple joy of happyness:

    i see you; i wish you no harm.

    oops! You’re money’s boiling.

    It’s losing its charm.

    A simple joy of happyness.

    Snuggled deep in a mother’s arms.

    For the simple joy of happiness,

    we build a fire in the cold.

    The human joy of happyness may help us

    when we’re old.

    The human joy of happiness

    rests in a locket

    on a breast in the Market.
