"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    “All politics is local.”

    That is, if you see politics as a collective noun. What do YOU say to that, Sid?

    Sidney: Huh?

    OK, that stated, isn’t this more publicity in behalf of governing

    on the cheap?

    Drive from Pawtucket into the East Side.

    Will the kids who live in these neighborhoods

    ever see two (or four) lanes of

    immaculate asphalt blacktop?

    Infrastructure that looks poor

    feels poor.

    I do admire Mayor Elorza in some ways.

    And I totally believe that he had the moxie

    to ask Buddy how governing was done.

    Gotta keep searching, searching….gonna find it.
