We have lots of stores. We have stores of all varieties and about every major national chain is represented. We probably have more restaurants per capita than we do seagulls. If your palate leads you into the exotic, and you don't mind a general and definite bland American undertone, almost every ethnic cuisine is available. Many world religions have congregations right here in Davis County. If you haven't visited more than one of them (or more that just your own Ward) you are definitely missing out on the richness of faith available here.
We don't need new stores. We don't need more restaurants. Now, on the faith and spirituality thing we probably could use a bit more; but that need probably won't be filled simply by constructing additional buildings.
Maybe what Davis County really needs is LESS.
Less noisy highways. Less development of housing on swampland which will surely flood once we get beyond the current drought. Less public officials who believe that the role of government is to become more and more involved in all aspects of private life. Less traffic through bedroom communities, which we could have if there were a roadway designed to cross the undrinkable Great Salt Lake wasteland rather than cut directly through neighborhoods and farmlands.
Maybe what Davis County really needs is MORE.
More open space in which to hunt pheasants, lizards and snakes. More fresh water and fresh-water related recreation opportunities; which we could have if our current county and city Fathers were as brave and competent as the old Pioneers and would simply "damn the torpedoes" as they build a solid causeway between North Salt Lake and West Warren. More backyard barbecues with neighbors (some we haven't even met, yet). More residents who understand that Government is usually the creator of problems; seldom the solution thereto.
What Davis County really needs is October weather year around -- which, like the foregoing, is just another impossible dream.
