Anyway, I was watching via one of the cable TV channels that covers City Council meetings -- and things got really messy. The way it works in Portland is that anybody can sign up to speak about whatever is on the docket. I don't know why it's okay for 'Joe Public' to speak without turning in their testimony, seeing as people giving standard testimony must do that! What a mess. Cursing and totally inappropriate 'testimony' took place. They had to clear the room and stop the broadcast.
Fortunately they took all of our staff who were there -- plus our Living History Mayor Harry Lane -- into another room, where they DID sign and got photos taken. Unfortunately Jeff stayed behind the group and ended up being CHASED from City Hall by a protester! Why is THAT okay???
Marilyn did another Living History performance today and was EXHAUSTED when she got home, little wonder!
I am hoping to go to work tomorrow, though. We are jurying for the International Youth Silent Film Festival after work tomorrow night and I've done it for several years now -- and would HATE to miss it. I hate missing out on all these things going on currently.
I didn't miss out on a bunch of IT work today, though, via phone. (sigh) I'll share more about that soon. It's after 2:00 a.m. and I'm heading to bed now. More later!
