  1. There will be time enough here to analyze the firework displays from last night’s Rye City Council meeting. They were classically first rate. But among salvos, sophistry and soapy excuses I saw a moment – 4 and a half moments actually – of pure humanitarian splendor. Suffice to say someone actually “gets it,” someone genuinely “cares” and there’s someone here who’s fully unafraid to speak truth to power on behalf of others who can’t. Please click the link to the meeting agenda item below and cursor over to minute 34.0 and view along to about minute 38.30. And let’s all give thanks that we have among us a resident like the good – Mr. O’Brian.
