"All but you, know they will say "NEA" to an Oswego Metra Station because it is folly and an unneeded and nonessential government service" Since when is public transportation a "government service". You say it is not needed because you would never use it. "So again, I suggest you wise up and learn some Political Calculus" Political Calculus - that must be George's new math - the same math that he used in his imaginary cost/benefit analyis for the Metra station. George you must be unemployed if you are that worried about me. Do you collect social security or does your wife support you? You do know the former mayor of Oswego also supported the Metra station so I don't understand why you pick on Mr LeClerq so much. I bet you drop in to the village hall on a daily basis since you live nearby.

"Well I heard that Logan's mom is a pretty lonely and distressed lady. Is she pretty good looking?" As I said before you have no interest in discussing the pros and cons of anything George. Oh that is nice. How low can you stoop George? Logan's mom died 4 years ago. What kind of picture would you like George? One of her when she was alive or a picture of her now. If you choose the latter, it may take me a while since I would have to dig up her corpse.
