Items from this morning’s LNP – Always Lancaster. Applicable quote from the Manheim Area Economic Development Corporation (MAEDC) president: “There’s an economic wave of development coming. We need to change our direction. Outside investors are looking to see where we’re heading (as a community).”
He also stated the “first step toward redefining MAEDC’s focus is to hire a consultant.”
Humor about consultants is well-established; the Institute of Management Consultants offers several, including the above cartoon.

Removal? Not too sure that “removal” is enough for the guy in charge of the ships that crashed and killed US Navy personnel. How about a trial? Removal is too “golden parachute-like – when do we begin demanding accountability for those on the bridge? After all, folks on his watch killed more US sailors than the “declared foreign enemy” has recently.
