    Oh please, Mr. Plain spare us the drama. Mr. Flanders is NOT an official of the town. He has no powers or authorities, whatsoever. He, like you or anyone else, is entitled to his views and opinions on what steps should be taken to address the matters that my be of concern to him as a citizen and a taxpayer. That said, any actions or changes that are implemented are Council decisions duly voted on by a majority of the Council, not Mr. Flanders’ and you know that. To peddle hyperbole nonsense about coup d’ etats is exactly what Mr. Flanders appropriately described it as – pure, unadulterated BS.

    I get a big kick out of

    town takeovers

    as catch-up playing

    for managers who didn’t manage,

    both elected and behind the scenes,

    and for comptrollers

    who lost comptroll.

    Republican evangelism.

    Sweet Jesus, save our shorts.

    Send Bob Flanders to help us.

    James Bond as a brisket

    in a shiny ride.

    We respect thee.

    We admire thee.

    We think thee

    is on the level.

    Just keep the channels of communication open.

    Communicate in the first place.

    Speak to someone.

    (wait a beat) Listen to someone.


    How will this summer be unlike other summers?

    Dad: It won’t be unlike them. It will be singularly beautiful.

    Enjoy it with your friends.

    Please enjoy the parks we made.

    civil war, a war among people,

    is coming,

    if we don’t get a grip
    on our language


    our behavior.
