And why are some of you so eager to let them get away with it?
Why are you so interested in rehashing a decision that has already been made? One that affects a rather insignificant percentage of the city's population, I might add, or perhaps even less than that (does Steve Brown even live in Madison?).
Any time you would like to propose one or several solutions to "the city's biggest problems" I'm sure you will get a lively (and perhaps even productive) discussion. I, for one, would be interested in seeing if there is any consensus on what "the city's biggest problems" are -- I know my list has shifted over the years.
On the other hand, if you're only interested in attacking individual officeholders on a personal level or complaining about city "gobbledy-gook" that you clearly haven't even tried to understand, then you will get the reaction you deserve (and want?). You're not the only one who enjoys anonymously tossing around overheated rhetoric, bombast and insults (clever or less so), after all. I'll hand it to Stu and ex-Mayor Dave -- they're actually willing to attach their names to what they say, and (presumably) to take the consequences.
