Mark Twain is reported to have said that "when the end of the world comes I want to be in Kentucky, because there it will come 20 years later."
Mark Twain was almost right. I suggest that since Elizabethtown has had a population larger than the state constitution prescribes for a fourth-class city for 50 years (since 1957) the world might come to an end 50 years later in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. That should be good news for the 4th class city Restaurant Tax proponents. This will allow them to collect a 4th class city Restaurant Tax, in a 2nd class city, fifty years after the end of the world.
