Tim - I'll meet you at Hop Scotch & Vine tomorrow during 'Hot Rod' cruise night at 7pm after I use the restroom. I have a 'baked bean' sponsor building up. Leave your ostrich eggs at home so none of the cars get 'damaged.'

Paul - I know that a lot of people(And I mean a LOT) see me as 'negative'. However, that is only because I am a mirror of the problems going on. It is not me that is negative, it is the majority of self-interested officials that are negative. As an adult, I don't believe in patting someone on the back for doing the job they are supposed to be doing, which is why it is so rare that you will see me make a comment like the one above. However, if I have something to say it is because I see something being done the wrong way, or the negative long-term consequences of what is being done. Since that happens so very often around here, I end up having a lot to say. If someone(like you) does not attract my criticism, that is my way of saying I think you are doing a good job(That means you too, Ed A.). That is based on you having a consistent pattern, that does not blow around with the wind depending on who it benefits. THAT is what is important in a public servant. If that can be duplicated(not the ideas, just the process) the village will be MUCH better off in the long run. Instead, we have a bunch of self-serving and self-congratulating children in adult bodies that think words are more important than actions. We all know how high school behavior works, and its time to finally get it out of our local government.
