Third time is a charm I suppose. Today’s city council vote wasn’t unanimous, but one vote shy didn’t matter. I will give council member Philip Kingston credit for finally bringing it home. After all the pros and cons were done he called the compromise a “no brainer” and urged approval. I’ve certainly given him enough grief for diddling around with this and giving false hope to those wanting to stop it … and I stand by that.
As I’ve said to friends in recent days, it’s like you want to break-up with your boyfriend. Is it better to do that the day before Valentine’s Day or the day after? They’re hurt either way, but “after” they know they were a pity-date and the roses a consolation prize. So yeah, I think he could have brought this ship into the harbor quicker and spared some of that false hope.
