Parking meters short-changed

With all due respect to Randy Newman, short people in Athens had plenty of reason to speak up about the new parking meters on Court Street. Some argued the meters were too tall to be able to read the digital screens. To compromise, city workers cut off about nine inches off the meter posts. As Newman once sang, “short people are just the same as you and I.”
