Your Local Government Lesson Of The Day

There's nothing particularly earthshaking about this video of some gay rights protesters showing up at the Fort Worth City Council meeting, but once I started watching it, it was a little hard to cut away from. Apparently this occurred two weeks after the raid of the Rainbow Lounge, and the protesters were actually placed on the agenda to speak. But some of them were none to happy to be the LAST item on the agenda. The good stuff kicks up at the 1:00 minutes mark. Part 2, where there were some very cooperative ejections from the room, is here. Random Thoughts:
  • Anyone who wants to spend their time at a council meeting is either a great citizen or crazy.
  • Mayor Moncrief knows how to run a meeting. That's exactly the way you handle it -- show as much patience as possible until the only option is to kick someone out.
