Columnist Quote of the Day

"Whoever gets elected mayor in Tuesday's runoff, please keep Fayetteville out of any more real estate deals.

"Let's learn from the Mountain Inn gravesite and SouthPass.

"My check into the SouthPass issue reached an early conclusion that nothing else shook: The City Council's resolution to let the mayor make this deal was vague enough to authorize just about anything. ... Some phrase in that resolution that any deal was "subject to further council approval" would have been nice.

"So now it looks like we're going to get a very nice park whether we can afford one or not. I like nice parks. ...I just wish this deal had come along when the city could afford it."

-- Doug Thompson, "No More Real Estate Trading, Please," The Morning News
