Let voice be heard on waterfront plans

(Continued)

We should all find it less than amusing that a secret society like COW (Are they really an organization? Do they hold any public meetings that invite opposing views?) should seek to impugn the integrity of the nicest, most open guy in town, authority member James Shanley, and contend that their public meetings are somehow not free exchanges of opinion from all sides. This is an utter falsehood that demeans us all.

Perhaps there really is a true silent majority of sorts in this city and, ironically, it’s all of us who don’t speak up and we ought to be ashamed of ourselves for allowing a small, loud, mostly out-of-town minority claim they speak for our community.
