Lowering expectations

Try as I might I can’t make this stuff up.

The Times article the other day about our local monument to corruption, favoritism, and poor government quoted a city representative.  She was talking about San Jacinto Plaza.

“We’re going to get it done,” Niland said, “but it’s going to be to the level of the expectations that absolutely El Pasoans deserve, because this is our crown jewel and it will be fabulous. It’s going to knock the socks off of Las Cruces, Van Horn and everybody else. It’s going to be fantastic.”

Slow to understand

Now I understand.  Our citizens have had the wrong standards in mind for our city.  Our crown jewel needs to be better than Van Horn’s.  We deserve this.

I suppose that even the people in Van Horn are shaking their heads over this one.

We deserve better

    We will however, be struggling to match the brilliance that is Sierra Blanca, Vado, and Dell City. Just so we don’t go all crazy here.

      Also Westway and Vinton.

      Plus we will never catch up to Anthony. They are growing their own vegetables.
