That's Debatable

Ummm ... Nice Try!

There was one other interesting moment during tonight's term limits forum on which we haven't yet reported. It was when Council Member Gale Brewer, the prime sponsor of the soon-to-be-introduced term limits legislation, left open the possibility that the Council could enact said legislation with the understanding that any changes in the law wouldn't apply to them (hence taking away any and all appearances of self-indulgence).

We must admit, she had us there for a moment! Everyone in the room really started to believe that the Council could actually do the right thing. But when pressed, Brewer mealymouthed what appeared to be a pretty solid refusal to commit to taking this very important step.

Que sera sera!
