Mr. Grande,

You're right. I should have said that Bratina and Farr's no-show caused me to wonder what was so urgent that not one but both of them deigned to attend, apparently without sending a proxy or at least regrets to the organizers.

I cannot provide a citation as it was merely my attempt to understand a seemingly bizarre situation. Of course I don't actually know where they were. It might have been their turn to cook Sunday dinner for all I know.

Considering the lengths politicians go to to reinforce a positive image, it seemed like a real gaffe to snub a community group like that. I might have put it down to health or a personal matter but that would hardly seem a possibility that would keep two 'voices of the TiCats' away.

I don't know if I'm being paranoid or not but I have strong and growing concerns that this council term is going to be a casualty of Tiger Cats business interests. After that well, then there's the looming Vranich business that the mayor seems quite keen to promote. And the LRT to the airport.

Meanwhile Rome burns. Am I nuts to think that this seemingly singular focus is occurring at the expense of other council matters?
