Every kid will want one
I received e-mail this morning from the Spring City Chronicle letting me know that when he posted a link to my column this morning the very first “hit” he got was from Mattel. A James Wigderson action figure cannot be too far behind.

Re: Action Figure
Bill, I see lots of possibilities for this. It could have a “chopping motion” like I’m cutting taxes. A kung fu grip hanging onto a dollar. Or even a companion note book and pen. Even a firepit!
Or better yet, maybe a full-sized figure with a pull-string in the back. Some suggested sayings:
· “Children should be seen and not heard.”
· “Cut taxes!”
· “Hey, there’s radium in my water!”
· “Watch out for the snow plow!”
· “Hey kids, read a newspaper!”
Or my personal favorite,
· “Defeat the evil city administrator!”
Think of the possibilities. We could have evil villains: The Mayor, The City Administrator, The School Board Gang, roving gangs of homeless politicians. We could have companion action figures (including an editor!).
Lunch boxes, Bill. Lunch boxes!
