Waiting for Laura

Here I am, cooling my heels and other body parts in the city council chamber, waiting for Herroner, Laura Miller, to show up so that the council can debate Leo Chaney's Park of Heroes. For some reason, the council says they can't discuss the Park of Heroes until Miller gets here from Austin, where she went this morning to testify in favor of air. Only she's not due back till 6, looks like.

It's 4:39 p.m. I believe this is a ruse to allow this very extremely awkward issue to lapse until a new council is seated after the upcoming mayoral election. I can see the wisdom in that from their point of view. But, speaking as a citizen, taxpayer and human being, I resent being diddled. --Jim Schutze
