Letter to the Editor: I am my own grandpa
Anybody out there a Ray Stevens fan. I am, which tells you a lot about me. He does country southern humor and most of it is done in funny songs. My favorite of all time is “I am my own grandpa.” It is a story about a young man who married a widow who had a daughter, which his own father then married. The song goes on in a tangle of relationships and finally Ray decides that he is his own grandpa. Now that is exactly what I feel like as a property tax payer. Here I am paying money to Dawson County. One part of the county is suing the other part. The Sheriff, who I fund, is suing the Board of Commissioners, who I fund, because the Sheriff claims he does not have enough funds. Oh yes, and the judge and the superior court system have to be paid and I am funding those too.
