Logan Building —dumb, stupid and deliberate

By From page A5 | July 03, 2013

EDITOR: Local resident Kirk Smith once again last Tuesday addressed the Board of Supervisors on its recent poor decision to lease the Logan Building for the Mental Health Department.

Mr. Smith told a story of when he was a young boy and how he would ask his mother what the difference between doing something “dumb” and doing something “stupid” was? His mother replied that when you do something “dumb” you don’t know any better, when you do something “stupid,” you knew better but did it any way.

He then chastised the Board of Supervisors for its “deliberate” choice to make a yet another stupid decision of renting the Logan Building, a property the county previously lost over $1 million and was the subject of three Grand Jury reports. It looks now as if there may be a fourth Grand Jury report on the Logan Building.

Kind of reminds me of the childhood question, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? In this case, how many grand jury reports does it take to get to the center of local corruption?
