John has done a great job of posting on the events at last night's Consolidated Government Council meeting. I couldn't make it due to family responsibilities.
As luck would have it, I managed to catch the discussion on the bond issue on AOC. I say "luck" because the program was on Channel 19. I thought council meetings usually ran on Channel 5?
Anyway, I just want to focus on one part of last night's presentation by opponents of the LUS plan that I think reveals a lot about the nature of the opposition.
It came when the DULL spokesman vowed that the legal fight against the LUS project is going all the way to the Louisiana Supreme Court. What struck me was the level of rapport and cooperation that these self-proclaimed defenders of the community have developed with the Atlanta-First crowd. It's obvious that the DULL crowd is not going to pony up the bucks to ride this train to the Supreme Court. They must have gotten word from Atlanta that this is the game plan.
Another thing: was it just me, but when the light was right and the DULL speaker actually looked up from his prepared text, I thought I could see Bill Oliver's fingers moving in the speaker's mouth. Or were they Gary Cassard's?
Quiet in the house! The incumbent sock puppets are talking!
