Too much whitewash for reader

June 02, 2010 - Dear Editor,

"To whitewash is to gloss over or cover up vices, crimes or scandals or to exonerate by means of a perfunctory investigation or through biased presentation of data. It is especially used in the context of corporations, governments or other organizations." Wikipedia

A promised police millage for the people to vote on that is now just a vote for the highest taxes legally possible to be used for everything possible.

Lawn mowing that now costs less by spending over $8200 of unbudgeted money from a planned deficit budget for equipment that will only be used 22 days out of the whole year.

Meeting minutes changed to reflect what was intended, not what was said.

Resolutions mysteriously changed to reflect actions and approvals that never occurred, at least not in public. A wall painted over so that it matches the sidewalk and buildings around it. Make it disappear because it is too dark, too colorful, too artistic, not artistic enough, not realistic, or too realistic.

Let's cover it all up, whitewash it over, and exonerate everyone from everything they ever did. This must be what we want because it is what we have.
