I Have A Dream - And It Is Coming True

While searches and capacity caps are the antithesis of open meetings at the Alexandria City Council, I am joyous that public interest has risen to this level. There is no quarreling with the necessity of searches as the exchanges and opinions have become more heated and the number cap has been posted for a long time as the chamber safely holds 72 people by fire marshall standards. If this keeps up, the council may need to buy a big scream TV (ebonically correct pronunciation) for the city hall steps.

I Want My Car Back!!!

I find it amazing that folks that should know would gloss over a litle ole constitutional matter like illegal search and seizure. Using the Town Talk figures of roughly $850.00 in towing and storage fees and extrapolating that to the stated 500 cars - appears to be an exposure amount of $425,000.00 for that alone. Let's see, now we have attorney fees, damage to property, defense of employees for criminal trespass, etc. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Maybe someone did not think this through? What say you, Mr. Citizen?

Loose Ends?

OK, the silence is deafening on several items that I would have thought there would a mere mention of some kind over the past couple of weeks.
1. The Bentley Deal
2. The CLECO Deal
3. The second set of books kept by the city involving employee hospitalization.
4. The utility rate quandary the citizens find themselves in.
5. Any other deal I have missed but that you wish to add to the list.
Am I over-reacting?

I Applaud Your Effort Michelle

I am quite sure that by now you are having some of the same emotions our local teachers experience as they deal with some of their "thick as a brick" students. Please continue your blog efforts as meaningful dialogue takes time to develop. "Brickheads" come with the territory.
