Karp-etbaggers

February 18, 2008

car·pet·bag·ger -

From wikipedia: “Since 1900 the term has also been used to describe outsiders attempting to gain political office or economic advantage, especially in areas (thematically or geographically) to which they previously had no connection.”

From Dictionary.com: “any opportunistic or exploitive outsider”

while this has been a serious issue in Newburyport for a good number of years, it seems even more relevant these days.

Think about it.
