All in all it was a delightful 10 days, and now there will be a 3 month hiatus before all are back. I will have to depend on Council meetings for entertainment.
Regrettably tonight's will probably be a bore since the agenda has no contentious items. It is sad that the acting Council President did not see fit to reconsider the resolution seeking bids from vendors to collect the $700,000.00 + owed in City Court fines.
Perhaps Council President Mapp will try to place it on the agenda.
In Sundays OP-Ed page 9of the NY TIMES Maureen Dowd in her column titled 'PLAYING NOW:HAIL TO US CHIEFS a critic of the Obama Presidency from which I have excerpted two quotes:
"HOW did the one formerly known as The One go for two?
In his renomination acceptance speech here on Thursday night, he told us that America’s problems were tougher to solve than he had originally thought.
And that’s why he has kindly agreed to give us more time.
Because, after all, it’s our fault.
“So you see, the election four years ago wasn’t about me,” President Obama explained. “It was about you. My fellow citizens, you were the change.”
"We are grateful to the president for deigning to point out our flaws and giving us another chance.
“I’m the president,” he intoned.
But We, the People, must do the work"
This was published in the NY Times, believe it or not.
Don't worry; there will be much more anti-Romney stuff to post. In the next 2 months it will be the time not to decide by emotion or Party but to be open minded as well as analytical in our final decision as to the best candidate and/or party.
