http://cityofboston.gov/citycouncil

people to understand the transactions, the proceedings of the city
council.

d. Matters are referred to so generally that it is ambiguous what many
items mentioned in the minutes are actually about.

e. The 1) city clerk, the 2) assistant city clerks or
the 3) council staff director are adamant in their denial regarding
the predicament of the too brief council minutes.

f. The city clerk, the assistant city clerks or the council staff
director do not have adequate time, do not make adequate time to
respond to enquiries regarding clarification of the council
minutes.

g. The city clerk, the assistant city clerks or the council staff
director intimidate people or require that you be ingratiated to
them when enquiries are made.

h. The city clerk, the assistant city clerks or the council staff

concerned or affected by our city council by not responding in a
welcoming manner and fully to enquiries.

government, has turned and closed off access to the full minutes of
our Boston City Council, the records of the stenographic machine,

The Omniscience of Memory
16 Apr 2005
Except for the recallable memory, especially the one in human beings, there is not a single entity in this universe that knows more about the changes taking place in this universe. This is so, because whatever the whole content of the universe is undergoing, it is but a "change of condition." The fact that man has the ability to recall the impressions of the "past condition" recorded in our brain as memory is indeed worth our admiration. If the claim that no other creatures, not even those from outer space, have recallable memory turns out to be true, we are definitely left with no other choice but to accept it as fact that man is the only creature capable of knowing the course of events of the whole content of the universe. Now, who actually is this creature that we call man?

Tax Me More
14 Apr 2005
This Tax Day, I'm telling Congress to stop giving me tax breaks. I'm wealthy. I don't need them, and they're bad for our country.

As a teacher, I can't look my students in the eye and tell them millionaires should get tax cuts while schools and libraries are hit with budget cuts.
