Friday’s open line

Well, we were disappointed to hear that few observers turned out at the library Thursday for the meeting of the Henderson-Vance Economic Partnership: two representatives of the media and two others. Kudos to City Council member Mary Emma Evans for being the only elected official not on the partnership board to attend the meeting. For the rest of us, who couldn’t be bothered to spend an hour at the library, the floor is open for semi-informed discussion.
