Back by (my) popular demand is Mark’s annual Christmas Gift Guide for public officials and other ne’er do wells. It’s considered a ministry by MainStreet Newspapers.
By the time you receive this inspiration, you’ll have almost two weeks to make your purchases, but be warned, identifying the gift is the easy part. Finding it is the challenge. Shipping is free.
First on the list in 2012 is Commerce’s new city manager, Pete Pyrzenski. If you want to help Pete be successful, find him some backbone — for his council members. He’s making some changes, and we all hate change, so backbone will be welcomed when citizens begin to complain because City Hall orders their junk-filled yards and lots cleaned up.
