Has board chairman and Democratic Party bigwig Warren Nash ever looked quite this flagrantly out of touch?
What was that?
Oh, yes; you're right. The street piano debacle two years ago was worse. We apologize, Ms. Rice. Some day this bone-headed junta will be back to greeting customers at Wal-Mart.

SOLICITATION QUESTION DENIED
The board also denied a request from Karen Rice, representing the University of Michigan, for a door-to-door survey to be conducted in New Albany as part of a larger social research study being completed in the Louisville area.
The study would have likely lasted through the end of the year. Rice said residents are contacted first, with a letter, before being solicited for response. They would also be paid for their time.
Nash said it has always been board policy to deny such requests.
"Since I have been on the board we have never approved anything like this," he said.
Let's hope the University of Michigan makes a second request, or just comes and performs the study without asking permission -- you know, like the religious zealots and political candidates knocking on doors without ever seeking permission from Warren Nash and the Band of Bored.
