Reading officials had to know the cost before starting their lined street-parking pilot program (“The bottom line,” Reading Eagle, Sept. 10). It is simple division and multiplication. Now they want to evaluate it. Their program worked in creating more parking spaces and solving some problems. What it didn’t do was create the revenue they expected. It is sad that laws are made counting on people to break them. We need to stop putting people with no common sense into positions of power.
In the same edition there was a photo of U.S. Rep. Chrissy Houlihan picking up trash in a dress at the Pagoda (“Houlahan meets Reading’s new Climate Corps”). It seems jeans and a shirt might have been a better choice. Sometimes the news articles seem more humorous than the comics.
