Lake Basebegone and “Quote of the Day'”

I was just glancing at the quote of the day on the Blog, which reads thus:

Affairs are easier of entrance than of exit; and it is but common prudence to see our way out before we venture in.

Aesop (620 BC-560 BC)

It seems a perfect reminder for Brunswick’s town council as they find themselves having to decide on whether F. Lee Bailey’s Oxford Aviation should be the beneficiary of taxpayer funds.

The quote reminds us it’s always easier to get into a situation than it is to get out of it.  And that before we get in, we should have a plan/understanding of how to get out.

My guess is there’s no way out of a CDBG once it’s been approved.  And with F. Lee Bailey at the helm, there’s no desirable way out of an “affair” with Oxford Aviation.

This is government at work, after-all, and how many disasters have you ever seen them back out of?  Getting out is never the choice when more spending is an option, is it?
