-My inaugural speech had a frightening moment when one onlooker collapsed on the marble floor of the Library Rotunda...Fortunately it was a case of spectator fatigue perhaps due to heat in the room or locked knees, a phenomenon familiar to anyway in formation.
Anyway, I think it was an inspiring speech and am glad the young lady was OK...Fortunately there were lots of helpers including Councilman and Mrs. Smith who are both physcian's assistants.
-There was a nice reception afterwards at Pete's and many people attended. The buzz was the engagement of Matt Doheny.
-City staff did a nice job staging the post ceremony refreshments and congrats too go to Elliott Nelson, the assistant to the city manager. Elliott also got engaged this past week.
-The MSM kept asking me my plans for 2015. Can't I have a few minutes to savor the moment ? Besides I thought I made myself clear enough in the text of the speech......
-Monsignor Robert McCarthy did his usual stellar job with the invocation...The fifth time he offered remarks at my inaugural.
-The JETS lost to Miami....Gang Green is Done for the Year....
