Success as Defined by Paul Dyster

So Paul Dyster's grand vision of a holiday market in Niagara Falls, which cost $900,000, half of which was taxpayer subsidized, lost $31,000 when all was said and done. Council President Sam Fruscione wants answers to the debacle that drew few visitors and even fewer buyers. Dyster, in his infinite denial, had this to say to the Gazette:

“We think, overall, the market was a success,” Dyster said. 

Only in Paul Dyster's delusional world would losing money be considered a success. Is it any wonder that Niagara Falls, while having one of the highest property tax rates in the country, is broke?

I just got back from NF. I couldn't help seeing those ramshackle huts as I went over the Porter Rd bridge.

To quote PT Barnum, "there's a sucker born every minute!"
