A sensitive soul, liberated beyond the world's…Continue

For the past 7 years, I've had the opportunity to attend quite a few CAC/CRA meetings. They've been interesting affairs, crazy spirited at the height of the Marlton Square debacle when there were questions on whether Chris Hammond would be a no-show. I've got notes, agendas, and minutes I can't bear to toss. I haven't been to many meetings over the past couple years, but I'm happy I made this one.
One of the State of California's budgetary plans is to dissolve every…Continue
