God grant my City Council the courage to change the things they can, the serenity to accept the things they can't, and the wisdom to know the difference.
So what's on the agenda for our City Council these days? The chaos that has been wrought by so much road work? Flood control? Term limits? Property taxes?
Would you believe slavery reparations?
I was going to write a long rant about he misguidedness of reparations, but I'll point you to this article in The American Prospect instead, which captures my feelings pretty well. Let's just say here that I consider this to be a waste of the Council's time, since after all they can do exactly bupkus about it.
In the meantime, let's hope that there's enough time in the Council meeting for them to talk about the West Nile virus outbreak, increased parking meter fees, the proposed pedestrian plaza for Main Street - you know, the things they can change.Posted by Charles Kuffner on July 31, 2002 to Local politics
