          $3 a gallon gas is better, but why not $2?

          It’s always good to see gasoline prices fall, but Editor Don Whitten wonders if we haven’t gotten too accustomed to higher prices if we think a drop to $3 is that good.

Scott takes a closer look at the actions surrounding the “Scratch and Sniff” show, and suggests that the Arts Council ought to have more say than the mayor in what is displayed. (September 29, 2011, Page 4)
