I can't believe what happened tonight -

I stayed though - because all i wanted was to see a bit of the show...All i
wanted was to see the show.
At the Bolton Town DRB meeting - in the brand new Bolton Town "Hall?"...full house...people out into the lobby. ANd all to hear about the big plan - biggest plan in my two and a half years living on the hill...and on that note - I can't say that I haven't loved every minute of it - because I have - every single minute - what a joy...pure joy living up here...and I want it known that I support fully the rights of private developement...but in this strange and terrible world you do have to beware - you have to beware!...Things are getting primitive folks...you can really feel the old Dr. now...when you think about how primitive it's gotten...we have...in a sense...in essence...innocence...forgotten ourselves...

This is not for the faint of heart.

This is

a war!

A WAR i think to myself...A WAR...

even as I know that it cannot be that anymore

and that is my big question of the day...


ohhh but what a tangent...

Back to the bolton town meeting - drb board - packed house - waiting to hear about the 236 condos, 10o room hotel, 30 single family home sites...

and it occurs to me that i know they are going to develop the mountain.

but before that - I am packed into a small 20 x 20 room - I would bet the buisiest it's ever been...

and there's Doug Nedde and what begins to look like the assembly - the drb? - they gather round a table as i stand, curious and arrogant at the door...looking over heads, straining -

as the person who does the talking calmly said three different things in a row - thre contradictory things - back, to back...to back.

She said - "We would like everyone to come up and sign up for what meeting you were here for - because there were three meetings and they would all be occuring at the same time..."

There was grumbling in the crowd. .. beauracracy this...mnnnnmmm....hnnnmmmhn,,,aaa,m,an,a,

"typical government"...mummbled under someones passing breath

as all the sheep left the room - in a heard.

immediately - I was there - in a room full of empty chairs and a table full of empty people. Scared people...I looked at their faces as the room - eerily quiet now that so many people had cleared the room - that sound was taken over by the sound of startled bungling...

I didn't want to leave - but I was told this wasn't the place - but Doug Nedde was still here and the council was still here...

The second thing she said - that contradicted herself was this:

"We need you all to sign up and list which meeting you are interested in...so and so meeting, such and such meeting, or the MasterPlan meeing - which will be over in the school - which is 1/4 mile down the street..."

And people just left -

But I stayed.
(it's a new style) - Erald Meddlar...

But i stayed...
and then it got weird.

It was the faces - the faces - I kept looking at the faces -

what could make those faces look like that?

There will be more - we will see what happens with this - but not here - at least not yet

but there is more - much more from the Town of Bolton that night - strange things are afoot in the small town of Bolton -

and I wonder who I can trust - I wonder who I can trust...
