Everyone is here. Rules are suspended. A small handful of people in attendance. Listen to the audio for the poetry reading.
Here’s a clue, but you really never know!
Yesterday, there was a police incident report that was recycled into a “news” story that really kinda pissed me off. (I’ve worked almost 80 hours since last Monday and have lost my patience, please excuse my language.) But where was the rest of the story on this . . .
I think I’m getting to old and cranky to continue putting up with political bullshit. Why is the only time politicians mention affordable housing is when then are using it to get something else they want? Exhibit A:
8 of 18 (44%) meetings before 4:30, 11 of 18 (61%) meetings before 5:30.
Stupidest thing about cramming everything into the council meeting last week is that they have one again this week. 4 of 16 (25%) meetings before 4:30, 12 of 16 (75%) meetings before 5:30. Looks a little light, expect lots of changes.

2013 WISCONSIN ACT 76 – TAKING EFFECT TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT!
RANT AHEAD! (Don’t worry, its thoughtful as I can be after sitting through 7 hours of meetings with them and listening to them justify why they should just now, start discussing amendments on the most expensive decision the City has ever made.)
Its going to be a bumpy ride.
George Austin kicks it off . . . how much are we paying him to coordinate all this city staff???
Room is filling up fast for the meeting before the meeting, will be interesting to see how it will be by the time the council meeting starts. Also, of note, one of the staff members, who is directly in charge of several of the items on the agenda, just says to another person with a slightly evil laugh “funny how the important issues all end up on the same agenda”. Who the hell is in charge of this?
