To the Editor:
The eclipse is coming to Southern Illinois! Hooray, now lets go out and gouge people out of their money.
It's $250 to go to Bald Knob, a cool $3,600 to rent a cabin for four nights at Rocky Comfort, Blue Sky vineyards charging $100 per night for RV hookup. SIU is renting rooms for three nights at the cost of $800, charging $25 to watch at the stadium, even charging at least $50 to stay in a building that is scheduled for demolition. I could go on and on.
Such greed from the friendly folks here in Southern Illinois. Even one of the churches here in Goreville is charging $50 to park in their parking lot. Don't you all think it is enough to be thankful with the extra income which will come to this area? Such greed!
I for one am hoping that a tropical depression comes to the area. People know about it, and it rains like mad on Aug. 21. Karma!
