Why The City Council Blew Off Goldy

I know why the Seattle City Council declined to give Goldy his three minute "job interview".  It's because there's no way they'd be able to get him to stop when his three minutes are up.  Trust me, I know.  ;-)

He he. But you were most gracious in the multiple ways of cutting Goldy off!

I can certainly envision Richard Conlin tapping that little Buddhist bell when Goldy's 180 seconds have elapsed. Not that that would stop him.

No, seriously: ROFL!!!!

Goldy, the City Council probably debated for an hour whether or not to let one of the most influential independent media voices on the planet (TIC) join the Council. And they made a strategic decision to keep your voice in the media instead.

Thank heavens we have such wise leaders!!!

Perhaps if they hit me with Jon's Buddhist bell? (Though I guess that wouldn't be very Buddhist, would it?)

For the record, the bell was Lynn's. I just played Quisimodo to her Notre Dame. :-)

And, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Richard Conlin or Nick Licata had one around their offices somewhere. Whether they bring it into council chambers is another story.
