All's quiet on the West Willimantic Front! Around Town, posted by Just me, a resident of another community, on Dec 15, 2008 at 5:14 pm
In these silent nights and days, we continue not a sound but the holidays. Our regional community quite uniquely disappears off the all media pages. Our council candidates in our own Brigadoon stay quietly in the fog. AND the growing issues of fiscal crisis are hidden quietly behind Christmas lights and trees.
Public people throughout our region are more like vaporware, not existent in today's context or interested in the immediate issues of purpose in our governments. Our media has proclaimed that they are not in service to us at all. Messages and information fall like pedals into absence as unanswered.
In our personal joy of the season, we are forgotten as citizens.
