This story hurts to think about

You've got to read newspaper stories all the way to the end. Witness this ditty, near the bottom of of a story last week on the latest action by the Erie County Industrial Development Agency.

The agency's Regional Development Corp. affiliate approved a $25,000 working capital loan to Art N Body, a Williamsville tattoo and body-piercing parlor at 5407 Sheridan Drive.

Yeah, that's right, a tattoo and piercing parlor.

I guess this is the IDA's idea of economic development.

Think the piercing parlor offers health care coverage and a pension to employees?

Could this be the beginning of a new business cluster?

I don't know, maybe the loan makes sense. I mean, a community can never have too many tattoo artists, to say nothing of piercing practitioners.
