The last couple days I have noticed a lot of acrimonious comments about City Hall, even though there was nothing here posted on City issues, particular anything about the Fire Department or members thereof.
The stories about a rest room incident are the most curious sounding. A news person was asking me about that today.
I post the comments as I think there is a simmering angst in some quarters, but I am just not sure what its all about, and frankly some of them are out there.
As one now detached from the process it seems the public needs in both city and county government, as it is in the towns, a chief executive who is elected and can determine events as a representative of the public. There is no substitute for the linkage to the people.
The current system creates a legislative branch which sort of oversees an executive function and when there is dissent, situations become difficult.
It's also too easy for the electeds to walk away from controversy by saying they have no say over key decisions.
The ability to instantly marshall public opinion through the Internet means a passive or a complicit media can't stop disdain from growing.
Like I said, I view comments with interest as they are indicative of something out there.
