I decided to delete that other string.
It was just getting - or had gotten very - ridiculous.
I should have put a stop to it earlier.
I dont have to allow anonymous character assassinations and i wont.
especially when they do not relate to the discussion at all.
ive not had time to post much last couple of days.
we are missing two out of five people in the newsroom.
so its kinda crazy right now.
here is my original post that got hijacked.
Another election. The sun came up again this morning. Life goes on.
I do want to say something about Scott Margolius. I thought he displayed a lot of class last night at the meeting, and was very gracious in his loss.
He was checking the results on his cell phone as the meeting was ending, and knew the results before any of the other commissioners knew. He could have just kept quiet and faded into the shadows. But instead, he congratulated the winners.
He gave them credit for winning.
After the meeting he acknowledged that the election was a sort of a referendum on the big box. He did not say he was wrong, but did say that he recognized the statement that was made by the voters.
It is important to win well. It is also important to lose well.
I think he deserves some credit for that.
