Hey. Just wanted to blow off a little steam. Tonight is our weekly planning board meeting, and our second project is a Muslim Community Center. And I just completely do not want to go tonight because all week the calls from "concerned neighbors" have started trickling in. Much crying and gnashing of the teeth about "How can the Town allow these people to come into our neighborhood?" Ok. maybe I exagerrated about the teeth gnashing. But I just don't want to deal with thinly guised bigotry tonight. I guess I just have to have faith that our Chairman will put the kibosh on unrelated outbursts/tangets. But it is just things like this that further enforces my sometimes belief that the general public is just a bunch of yahoos. Which is probably not the best attitude for a planner, the public's advocate, to have. But oh well. Sorry. I'm just tired and crabby and totally dreading tonight. I'm sure that once I get into the bathtub tonight after the meeting and after consuming a couple of "wind down" mich lites I'll be in a much better fram of mind.
Thanks for listening to me (reading my) bitch.
