Kudos to Councilman Pat Partin for his very thorough and well-written letter in this newspaper. He gave excellent accounting and insight into the reasoning of City Council regarding the proposed construction(s) to take Camden to a new level.

Alas, better late than never.

You have heard every American citizen shares in our national debt. Today -- each of us, newborns, included! Approximately $48,000!
