First, it was the Tacoma City Council asking voters to do away with term limits — a proposition Tacoma wisely rejected last month. Now it’s the Pierce County Council’s turn. On Tuesday, Dec. 2, the Pierce County Council voted 5-2 to approve two proposed amendments to the Pierce County Charter

As I sit here trying to come up with yet another witty way to start yet another story that revolves around the seeming collapse of the economy as we know it — and the belt-tightening, corner cutting and pocket searching that have beset all of us — I can’t help
