Small Step Forward for the Frankenstein Gangster Conspiracy
Author's Statement of Purpose: My goal is to get more people to be interested in the PUBLIC COMMENT + COMMUNITY FORUM on TV Tacoma. I want folks to recognize our civic speakers on the street and have compassion for the thundering engine driving them. "I will forge new connections to people orphaned by civilization." - RR Anderson

Bobble-Headed Tall Ship Swabbies
Mr. Charles Creso
"We have term limits for a reason. Voting to remove term limits without proper public/comity review impugns the integrity of our charter amendment process. Vote NO for the removal of term limits."
Lonely University Place Guy
"Good evening members of the city council and Mr. Mayor. I think removal of term limits is a good thing as today the learning curve is such that qualified people chance to serve... and education to best benefit the people of Tacoma. And I still have the wedding anniversary card you sent me 5 years ago Mr. Mayor.. thank you."
The Honorable State Master Mr. Robert "The Traveller" Hill
RR Commentary: I'm not exactly sure what Mr. Hill's position on the issue was but he appeared to have changed into an alternate character mid way through the council meeting... a German Rock Musician of some sorts. Unfortunately my shit pants Click! internet connection kept kicking me off the streaming video and I missed the police escort out of the chambers. But I did catch this bit at the end where Councilman Lonergan asked the city attorney if there was some way to ban Mr. Hill from any future City Council meetings (I assume Mr. Hill had mentioned masturbation as the specter of 'kids could be watching' was raised ).
"I challenge the city attorney to find a way to expel Mr. Hill from all future city council meetings. His behavior is increasingly weird and not appropriate for children."
* * * INTERMISSION * * *
"Lets keep the term limits. Fresh blood is a good thing."
RR Commentary: Uh... not picking up what you're layin' down lady.
Methane Conspiracy Whistleblower
"The city bought special vehicles that run on methane gas, every night I drive by the off-gassing torch to see a continuous flow of methane burned away--completely wasted! We should be recapturing it for our fleet of vehicles. Let's stop the waste."
RR Commentary: Amen!
Maryland Strickland, Champion
"I am against the removal of term limits. We've got to keep a steady flow of fresh blood in here. Just look at what is happening to poor Connie Ladenburg... she hasn't had fresh blood in over 10 years!"
RR Commentary: You know, Maryland Strickland kicks some ass.
Julie Anderson, Champion
"[something noble advocated here]"

|The term limits debate has nothing to do with good government. It's all about Connie, Connie, Connie.|

|traveller has made the Olympia blog again:
couple of factual errors..
The Traveller did not remove his pants. He removed his mechanics's overalls (i believe to be dickies) and he was apparently not wearing pants under them.

|are overalls/jumpsuits pants? I always thought of them as more than pants... more than a jacket.... more than a crude fusion of the two. |

He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
