PARADISE LOST


Welcome to today's Texas Hill Country. What was once considered the most desirable area to live in the Lone Star State has, indeed, become PARADISE LOST thanks to the explosive, uncontrolled and malignant growth of subdivisions on virtually every hilltop and hillside to accomodate the tens of thousands of HillBillyBobs arriving every year.

There's plenty of money to be made by the bulimic builders and the rapacious realtors who have raped the landscape for personal profit, aided, of course, by the concupiscent Chamber of Commerce who still has the temerity to describe the area as "a majestic wonderland blessed with rolling ranges of countless peaks and valleys."

Oh yes, the Chamber also claims a "reliable" water supply. Please note they didn't use the word "abundant." This is the only honest statement ever made by this ostentatious organization -- with continued, unfettered growth the one thing we can all count on to be "reliable" is that the demand for water will far surpass the availability.

Talk about getting one's just deserts...

An understandable comment from someone who has a trophy home, a Century 21 jacket or thirty wetbacks working for him. But from you???

Tisk, tisk...
