After attending the Local Historic District Study Committee last night, all I can say is, ‘Do yourself a favor and attend one of their meetings, especially if the Woman with the Plastic Fence attends.”
James Charles Roy recently wrote an editorial talking about closed-minded people. You have to see this with your own eyes to believe it.
It reminded me of a theater goer, suddenly standing up and falsely screaming, “Fire!” in a crowded theater.
The resulting terror, mayhem and chaos let alone someone potentially getting hurt would surely have that perpetrator clamped in irons!
It was clear that WPF wanted only to use any actions, comments and statements made by the Committee in a malicious and hateful manner to perpetuate her own preconceived ideas.
A lot of people don’t have the time to dig into the list of guidelines, the ordinance and all the pros and cons of a local historic district.
They’ll be coming to discussions and public hearings in a sincere manner to have their concerns and questions answered.
Unfortunately, they’ll be hampered by a small group of unreasonable alarmists shouting, “Fire!” and putting a damper on the proceedings.
THERE AUGHT TO BE A LAW FOR SUCH DEMOGOGUERY!
