Yes, JD, I too believe fountains are beautiful and I spent a great deal of
time kissing and cuddling in front of the one on the lakefront in the 60's

others. At this moment of the game (recovery), it's hope that's needed to
coincide with funds so desperately needed. If money is indeed earmarked to a
project, it makes one wonder why it's not firstly earmarked to get people
the necessities that's needed primarily. Is it chicken or the egg? No I
believe that it's called, "first, second, third, forth..." etc.

Do we need to build a playground before there's housing? Proper
food/nutrition? Education? And yes, a fountain.<smile>. A fountain would be
a grand idea, if it were filled with hope, LRA money promised, food and
drink (with no water of course flowing) as a lift-up to being where we
should be one and one-half years after our "attack". But, I do get your
