The city of Sunset Hills, MO, has revoked the business license of a motel owner. He says that he is being targeted unfairly, but the city feels otherwise.
I’m quoting directly from an editorial in the Post-Dispatch that ran on October 28, 2016 because, frankly, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Best quote in Post-Dispatch reporter Tim O'Neil's story about the decision came from Alderman Dee Baebler: “We scolded him three years ago when there was a meth lab that blew up in one of the rooms. We had a list of things to correct. But, in fact, it only got worse.”
Well, sure. An exploding meth lab deserves a stern scolding. …
Maybe next time they should pile on the pressure and send a certified letter.
