Too Big to Fail

The Flat Rock Playhouse needs money badly. The article in the local daily featured a photo of Las Vegas style women to help you understand. The General Assembly approved a one-cent tourism tax increase expressly for the playhouse, but the Henderson County Commissioners got cold feet about raising a tax for a single private party, and did not approve the hike. The theater has been losing patrons, as a lot of Western North Carolinians can’t afford to put food on the table anymore – if they’re lucky to still have a table. If people won’t put theatergoing ahead of food and shelter, then there must be a way to get the rich to pay for this too-big-to-fail endeavor.
