Nice article, Adrian.
Did you catch this? http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/05/2...
I know this subject isn't new to many/most who frequent RTH...especially its editorial staff...but I'm always intrigued when such topics gain MSM traction.
I salute anyone who wants to make positive changes in their community and puts energies into such ends. (Whether or not they're 'right'; it's the engagement, the discourse that to me, that's paramount.) Bylaws aside, my feeling is that the biggest challenge has to do with the perceived loss of 'power' on the parts of civil staff, departments, elected officials, as 'we' insist on more of a say. The fact is that many of these groups currently wielding the power do NOT want input, do NOT want their authority questioned. They want to be left alone to do their jobs as THEY see fit.
What's wrong with this picture?
It'll take time, but the paradigm shift will occur. (Even if it takes so long that many of these dolts die off or don't get returned to office.) This is a long, long fight, mostly occurring under the radar.
Kudos to those who plug away, tirelessly.
