Wherever you or I live, next door is a bad place for a lighted football field. Or a landfill. Or a low-income rental housing project.
We don’t so much mind those things somewhere else. In fact, we kind of like them. Somewhere else, that is.
We like that Richmond County has a big landfill. That gives us a convenient place to dump garbage since Columbia County’s landfill closed. We love lighted football fields, happily drive to them for Friday night games and enjoy them even more afterward the farther away they are in our rear-view mirrors.
