After frustration set in over how the library board of the Alamogordo Public Library makes policy, one commissioner is ready to cut funding of the library. After a vote, the Otero County board of commissioners dropped the $40,000 annual money the library receives from the county.
Sit back and hear a story, kids. Once there was a town, we'll call it "Fat Alamo." That town, and the county surrounding it, were filled with a magical people that disliked most everything. They enjoyed fighting with each other, banning books (maybe even Neil Gaiman books), and just being dicks to each other as far as education was concerned.
It got so bad that their leaders stopped thinking about the people that lived there and just argued among themselves, referring to public funds as "my money" as if they had personal stake in how the community lived and went along, to the point where they would stop helping each other over petty disputes and politics rather than compromise and work with each other.
No, really, that's all there is.
