Well kids, it’s Halloween season, and boy, do we have some scary stories for you. Let’s begin with a very eerie development from Harrisburg, where (imagine creepy sounds here) Harrisburg CityCouncil members actually agreed to do something they were asked to do!
The Council went along with the mayor and receiver William Lynch and (cue scary music) agreed to double the earned income tax in order to head off the layoff of police, fire fighters and other city employees. Not everyone was happy about this. Two Council members opposed the tax increase, and one of them offered this ominous comment: “The piper will be coming home soon.” Oh, my God, not the piper! PLEASE, ANYBODY BUT THE PIPER!
