Topic: Innovation and History

A Web site devoted to Innovation is saying things similar to what the Sherwood Historical Society Mission Statement says. At least I think so. Please read a very (very) short story called Parable of the Beautiful Town and tell me if it has anything for us and our political leaders.

Yes. This story is so true.When people get frustrated, they move on to greener pastures. You can't fight city hall and all those who think they know what they are doing, so you move on. Been there done that, but don't want to do it any more.

"Parable" is a very interesting word. "Para" means with, or alongside. "Para-ble" means comparing one thing with another thing.

When somebody doesn't understand something and you wave both hands at him and you say, "Okay, I'll explain it to you. It's like this." That's when you tell a parable.

Jesus told parables in the Bible, so I guess it's a history word.
