The listening has begun... so have the threats.

A comment on the last post says " I'm sure you do a wonderful job in your mind BUT from the looks of things the whole of media here, whether on your end or another, are stagnant. We're overtaken by wave after wave of stories focusing on "feel-good" events that bear little cause to the overall good of the people. Because of this, any serious discussion is pushed to the wayside."

So if that was the case, why start the communication flowing? If we feel we are doing such a terrific job why ask for input?

Here is a tiny list of ideas generated thus far; the Bentley deal (or no deal as it is) the connection between Ms. Brown, Mr. Lawson and Mr. Sanders and how it relates to Cleco, a check on a duplicate set of books being kept for City of Alexandria employees in regards to benefits and I think a moratorium on anything having to do with covering features in Deville.

Am I missing anything?

I am sure that there wil be those that wished Greg would go away after they fan the flames from their asses. I had a similar experience with Cenlamedia as far a posting and will continue to post there with milquetoast comments but nothing incisive.

I hope this is not true. "Spanky" has some interesting things to say.

Michelle,
No offense intended and hopefully none taken. I tire of the negative events and commentary as much as anyone, but there are problems that go to the core of what makes our government operate properly which is the collective will of the people.
Once upon a time in the not too distant past, justice was complete when a man slid off the back of a horse and stretched a rope in the company of his accusers after a cursory discussion. History shows when public frustration due to lack of justice reaches a crescendo, the palace guard is helpless against mob rule. Therein lies the beauty of our system to this point. The palace guard is we the people.

I am the most skeptical sumbitch in the world but I, for one, am very grateful that you would care enough about this community and your profession to expose yourself like this. I think we have the most workable deal in the universe: if we will talk, you will listen. Thanks

UPDATE: I have been working the phones today and hope to have some information to report on some of the news items listed above. Keep posting your story ideas.
