$$$$$ .....( "DOWNTOWN" ) .....$$$$$

Business as usual... With the parking fund being some $800,000 short last year, the City Council wants to allocate monies from it (monies it probably won't even have) to the "DOWNTOWN" Marketing Taskforce, a group comprised of Wilmington "DOWNTOWN", Inc. and the "DOWNTOWN" Business Alliance.

"DOWNTOWN": down-town (-toun'), noun.
(1) the place where the City Council and their cronies have decided
that all city monies are to be spent on pet projects (sometimes
pronounced "White Elephants") for the benefit of a select few.
(2) a hole near the river into which taxpayers pour money.

The more you think about it, you more you start to question the value of actually even having a "DOWNTOWN".
