When the Partnership was terminated by the City of Salem, a friend of mine said "you should call 60 minutes". Wow, the fame our town could garner for all the stupid misdeeds of our highly paid staff and elected officials. We could be famous.

Cherry City Blogger, you're right. Fame awaits Salem! But I think the absurdities of City staff and elected officials are better fodder for The Daily Show or The Colbert Report than 60 Minutes.

(Or, if all else fails, a You Tube episode of Salemia that has more of an "edge" to it than the previous Salemia filmings.)

The City staff/politicians are nefarious, but the US Bank tree debacle has enough absurdist humor embedded in it to be comically ridiculed (in addition to seriously ridiculed).
