(Thanks Gala, ha!)
So once again I snuck into the meeting late. I walked in just as Bill Denton was speaking (as a visitor) about Duck Creek not getting money that was rightfully alloted to them....he was just so......angry, and it was so......heated....so, so, so......passionate. Afterwards I could've really gone for a smoke, truth be told. And then low and behold, in the seat right in front of me was this little beauty:
Now I know there is a smoking ban in this town, er, council room...and a food and drink ban, and a screen touching ban...
so I guess I will just have to focus my energy into an e-mail writing campaign to my congressmen regarding the lack of gold plated sidewalks in duck creek.
After all, if anyone would understand the injustice of this, Pete Sessions would. (I heard he had to go to a strip club where women danced on SILVER PLATED polls just last week.....what's this country coming to?)
Moving along, during the visitors section there was a young man who addressed the council regarding sidewalks that were not up to ADA requirments along Plano Pkwy:
Really neat guy. After the meeting I had the chance to talk to he and his wife, and turns out, he's an IT guy, getting his masters in something super-IT-ish.
He asked my why on earth the city council didn't have their meetings available online or on cable access. I told him what they have told us and he said he could EASILY do something about this issue. I promised him we would then, in turn, throw him a parade. Anybody have some excess crape paper we could use?
