I will not be a regular blogger, but i do have some comments. First, why are the OBAMA's at the top of the Patch banner? Each time I look, THERE THEY ARE---AGAIN. I find this objectionable as Obama is the MOST unconstitutional pres. in history. Why should a pic, (with author "American GROAN" Michelle Obama looking so fat and healthy next to her nicotine addicted hub---when EVERYTHING we know about our USC freedoms are under attack??
Second and finally, I find the Brentwood in-fighting and certain aldermanic fillabustering over Maureen Saunders to be NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF BRENTWOOD as a whole. If there is a problem with the availability of information used in governance, or how laws came to be, THAT IS A BIG PROBLEM.
I watched on the local cable a inexcusable exchange of "you slapped me harded so i have get to slap you back, and then..." (what?????) mentality. I was astounded. I LOVE BRENTWOOD, in particular First Responders and Public Works. BUT out of common dignity, don't parade individual (perceptual) differences/assaults like a school yard fight. And quit mentioning the religious Church affiliations of any given members--as that is PERSONAL---NOT POLITICAL. Don't DO that. If members can't say what they mean within a reasonable period of 3-7 minutes (real time) THEN YOU HAVE NOT CLARIFIED YOUR OWN POSITION IN YOUR OWN MIND, PRIOR TO OPENING YOUR MOUTH. I do not mean this as a scathe, but as a Brentwood loving community member. Meetings should not be more than 2-1/2 hours, or the blah..blah..bla...is excessive. Line your ducks up, THEN shoot...BRENTWOOD IS BETTER THAN THIS. sprintmudder
