victory is ours!

It was a very long meeting with the Board of Supervisors today. I think there were 17 or 18 people who spoke against the ordinance (including me). Yeah, I haven't had to do a whole lot of public speaking in recent years, I was nervous!

In the end, 3 of the 4 supervisors present wanted to drop the proposal. One wanted to have it reworked and tabled for a few months (and this surprised me, this was the supervisor I most expected to be on "our side.") But thankfully the majority won, and the proposed ordinance has been dropped. Yay!!!

Hopefully they can find a way to address the problem without infringing on the freedoms of those of us who are not causing any problem.

Oh yeah, and two of the supervisors commented on my t-shirt. Ha ha!

In unrelated news, the computer has intermittently been making strange noises. Fan problem is my guess. I guess if it becomes constant I'll have to take it in for repair, but it needs to survive until I'm done with taxes, as I depend on Turbotax to understand all those forms! I hate computer problems. And car problems.

Hooray! It figures that so many of the politicians have no clue about what is going on in the real world. They just listen to their interns who are fed info from groups like HSUS and PETA. They are against animal ownership in the first place.
