The Enquirer reports that the push for a County-wide Arts tax has support in Hamilton County. That's bad news.
The good news is that it does not stand a snowball's chance in hell of getting to the ballot, or passing if it did. Until our City fathers get off the jag of wasting money on every flashy new idea that comes down the pike (Streetcars, Underground Transit Centers, NURFC and a $4.4 million glass atrium atop City Hall), the voters aren't going to give them any more money.
Mayor Mallory, Roxanne Qualls and the "progressives" on City Council are actually doing more damage to their big-government objectives than advancing it, as their choices for expenditures have been so consistently poor.
We want Cincinnati and Hamilton County to succeed, but we don't accomplish that by chasing wild geese with our scare resources.
