Air meeting citizens' walkout
Disappointed at the failure of even one elected San Antonio
or Bexar County official to show up at an AACOG Clean Air meeting, a group
of citizens walked out of the public session last night.
Citizens Organized for Good Science
founder Mark Langford said, "About 70 percent of the people"
walked. "It just seemed pointless to stay there" when no one
in power was there to listen. If elected officials such as mayor Ed
Garza and county judge Nelson Wolff ever show for a Clean Air
meeting, it might be next Wednesday's AACOG Executive Committee session
set for 9 a.m. at AACOG headquarters (in the old Tesoro building near
Broadway and north Loop 410). Langford suggests the public show up for
the "citizens to be heard" session then.

Braunfels may privatize trash pickup
Speaking of trash, last week
I heard one of our San Antonio city councilmen suggesting that perhaps
we should start using big trash containers that could be picked up by
grabber trucks, so the city wouldn't have to pay trash men.
I reckon City Hall has a very short institutional memory (term limits!)
because about ten years ago, San Antonio carried out a lengthy trial
of grabber trucks and couldn't keep them up and running. There were
so many pickup-mechanism breakdowns that the automated trash pickup
scheme was abandoned. If no one at City Hall remembers that, we may
have to squander a few more tons of taxpayer money to repeat the process.
Ask Bexar County Commissioner Lyle Larson: he was a councilman then
and the trial was in his District 10.

presidential words don't line up
Four months after the US and its allies invaded Iraq, no weapons of mass
destruction or elements of a reconstituted weapons program have been discovered
there. Deposed President Hussein remains at large. American soldiers are
dying every day, and there appears to be no exit strategy.
