Re: “Apathy and laziness also cause low voter turnout

"And voter participation was considerably higher than it is today."

This is incorrect, at least for presidential elections.

In 1952, turnout for the general was 61.6%. In 2016 it was 55.5%. It's slightly lower, but not considerably. With the exception of 2008, Presidential election turnout hasn't been higher than 56% since 1968, and it hasn't been higher than 63% since before the 19th Amendment was ratified.

Re: “Whole Foods could push Monroe to breaking point

You might have a point, Michael, if Whole Foods was a small local grocer, rather than a massive destination grocer that will draw shoppers (in their vehicles) from nearly the entire county.
