  1. I guess all the work isn't done in subcommittee after all.
    The sign bylaw discussion reminded me of Andy Kaufman wrestling women on SNL.

    Kudos to Shaun Moriarty for taking his stance and defending it against his lady counterparts. Making a sign bylaw against a business that isn't even here yet while it's not even being enforced on existing businesses is just bad governance. It leads to more of the same selective enforcement we've all come to know and hate in this town.
    Again, good job tonight Shaun.
