Eddie I can't argue that point, I'm sure it does apply to some people, though not to all, and I dare say not to the majority. But hey without good scientific polling as to motivation (though who would admit to that even if polled) we are just lobbing theories. With my last post (sorry about the typos) I merely wanted to point out one thing that lessened my fears about drowning out the voices of those not in the majority. I really think this is the best way to go in a community that does have a diversity, diversity that I think will make the City of Brookhaven the best newer city in metro Atlanta. I think they were drawn to reflect communities of interest. It may lead to some contentious council meetings but at least it will help assure the diverse communities of the City have a voice.

By the way Eddie Haskill, the Paternalistic dude... You can call me what you like (and be completely wrong about your labels) but I've only commented on a short-term basis and you know it. If anyone is a long-term pain in the A... It's you! How much is DeKalb and NO CITY paying you for all your slanted commentaries?

Dr. Joke, I am happy to give of my time and finances to help protect my neighbors from the invading horde of parasitic contractors. What about you my anonymous menace compatriot?

Dr. Joke, When did I say royalists? Tools? probably, corporate parasites? of course! People with their neighbors interests at heart? not a chance! We'll see Wednesday. Just don't whine about a recount.
