Powers awaken the angry ancients

Amazing; it seems the “Dutch mafia” is still around, the majority of the merchants didn’t want it. The powers that be were warned but ignored the warning. The engineer said he was “mistaken” and the mayor said “we want to do what’s right.”

What was right was to leave well enough alone. Mr. Johnston should be fired and the mayor should withdraw from the next election. You woke the ancients and they are angered. They were safe and happy and I hope the state and the natives take their toll on your arrogance and we have a very nice park where a road used to be.
