Porter County Commissioner John Evans' encore performance in "Pass the Bucks, Henny Penny" must have been an epic to behold. Often public meetings are the best show in town.

Perhaps Evans can next embrace the role of the wolf in "Three Little Pigs," a seemingly perfect fit for the haughty and loquacious master of "huff and puff" for those who dare to disagree, underscoring the dangers of a single county executive with tunnel vision.

Still, in all fairness, the commissioner is merely the poster child for the all too numerous band of politicians (mostly from the same party) determined to drain the public coffers in a Kardashian-style mania of self-interest pursuing the almighty but ever-elusive economic development and cosmetics while ignoring the wishes and needs of the general public.

Guys, you were not given absolute power when you were elected to serve all the people. Most of all, you cannot fool all the people forever.
