The Bible is very clear as to timing in this world and if there is any place where it is needed is in politics.         

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

While the rest of us are working in our yards and taking care of the necessities of life, the anti-historic preservationists are just trudging along.      While big issues fill the minds of FEMA maps, Plum Island silting and the looming June 5th school vote; they’re still angry and bitter and seeking new ways to build bigger uglier signs.

I heard they recently did a standout at some street corner – while the rest of us are talking about schools and waterfronts, spring and summer, gardens and boating; they’re furiously waving their ugly signs.

Talk about needing to get a life!      The facts are all out on the LHD; plenty of videos and brochures to read and the public hearing is way off on June 21st.

This is what is called in polite society as ‘being a bore’.     The definition according to the dictionary, “To make weary by being dull, repetitive, or tedious.”

Layoff until after the vote, do a truce and we can be at each other’s throats on the 6th of June.
