RAMSEY -- 13 as an outstandingly unlucky number, the number of Original Sin. First bite. Landform apple. Bidding? -- 4-3 -- We don't need no stinking bidding. How and what was Matt Look advocating? Ditto, Ramsey's Bob Ramsey? Ditto McGlone? Open your eyes.
July 14, 2009.
A day that shall live in infamy.

Televised meeting, REVISED Agenda includes added "item 13;" then item 13 minute pages.
There was no advanced notice of this. It was somebody's rabbit; pulled out of somebody's hat. Figure who knew it was to happen, who was sandbagged, who you trust after that thing - that way. Wise is the interesting wild card vote. He said he was kept in the dark. He said that while able to count up to four.
Twenty-three grand was something I found troubling, especially done that way and Jungbauer involved, but at the time I thought it would be no major mischief simply because it was limited in amount and scope; failure prone for sure with no likely value to it; but not grossly looting the city fisc either (at twenty-three grand, cap it there, end of story, okay).
Looking again at that record of how the Landform initial bidding-free insinuation into our placid town was handled, it got me to searching the web for the word "huckster." It is an interesting noun. There is no verb, "to huck," "to be hucked," "getting hucked over," "a hucking million dollars to Darren."
Don't take my word for it. Look it up on the web.
Don't ignore comment threads. While rare, they sometimes leaven a post.
