Happy to get a hot dog, bag of popcorn
I had to laugh when I read the letter on Feb. 23 from Pete Mallon regarding the Daily Herald's coverage of overspending by school districts on special events, particularly the expensive meal at Morton's. Mr. Mallon took exception to the coverage, noting that they didn't have to pay airfare to get to the conference.
But the line I loved was, "If I volunteer two days on a weekend I think I deserve a dinner at Morton's." Wow! I remember volunteering a lot of weekends when I was happy to get a hot dog or a bag of popcorn. Not many organizations could afford volunteers with those Morton's-type expectations. Oh. but that was taxpayer money they spent. I guess that makes it OK.
