Mt. Pleasant Rebranding as Idiotic

Do you think it has occurred to Mt. Pleasant Council members that spending $100,000 during an economic downturn for "rebranding" its image actually reinforces its stereotype as the "wine and cheese" crowd? [See Town Launching Effort to Sell Itself.]

And who has admitted ownership of that 2001 permit law that predictably increased the average new home price in the town? I don't know, but Stokes-Marshall gets the prize for idiotic comment of the day:"the town is not welcoming to less-affluent newcomers of different ethnicity."

Don't be ridiculous. No one cares about ethnicity; it's all about affluence. Do they have the big bucks?
