While last week's look at the impact of furloughs on downtown Sacramento businesses created a stir because it raised questions about how many days gubernatorial staff are furloughed, a Folsom business owner had a different angle on the story.
Here's the e-mail restaurant owner Richard Righton sent to Bee reporter (and Home Front co-blogger), Jim Wasserman, presented here with Righton's permission:

Just wanted to drop you an e mail to put a positive spin on your "furlough Friday downtown" article.
The last couple of furlough Fridays have been incredibly busy here at the bistro in Folsom -- I think due to more people staying and eating in Folsom rather than going to work in downtown.
