Another waste of money for "feelings". Our government's need to base their policies in reality. Reality is crime by blacks is rampant. Reality is blacks run the council but never express their "feelings" at their neighbors, friends, relatives or siblings until it's too late. Every dui page is rife with drunk "undocumented" aliens which never are turned over to the Feds. Reality is this Borough sucks down more federal, state and local taxes than any other in Montgomery County. Reality is nobody addresses all the elephants in the room which have now crowded all the "people who pay the freight" out of the room because they are defeated, discouraged and if 90% of them had the means to move they would. Finally that a one party dictatorship has ruined every major city north of the Mason Dixon line over the last 50 years. Do you think more than 20% of Norristown High grads even know what the Mason Dixon line is?? Start collecting your bets on the NO side. Bill Caldwell, I love your optimism but you're not in Kansas anymore.
