Supervisor Nutting did what every good businessman does
I have been keeping track of the situation involving Supervisor Ray Nutting. I will admit that I don’t have or know all of the details.
However, from what I have read, given my background in business, it appears to me that Supervisor Nutting did what every good businessman does. He has taken advantage of every opportunity to make a profit. He has seized every chance to increase his return on the investments he has made. As an entrepreneur and businessman why shouldn’t he do everything to increase his return?
The purpose of being in business and investing is to make money. If what Supervisor Nutting did was take advantage of legal programs that are available to any business person then he is doing what he should as a businessman. The only question in my mind is did he use his influence as a supervisor to make his profit. If he used his status as an elected official to further his business interests in anything other than a legal manner that will be adjudicated, if he didn’t then all of this noise about Supervisor Nutting will be, to paraphrase William Shakespeare, “a tale full sound and fury signifying nothing.”
The 5th scene of Act 5, Macbeth, the play's protagonist, is confident that he can withstand any siege from Malcolm's forces. He hears the cry of a woman and reflects that there was a time when his hair would have stood on end if he had heard such a cry, but he is now so full of horrors and slaughterous thoughts that it can no longer startle him.
She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing. — Macbeth (Act 5, Scene 5, lines 17-28)
