AFTER ASKING TO TALK TO me for 20 minutes regarding the process of council reorganization, Loose Lips (1/13) writes that he “feels the need to go bang our head against a brick wall three times—just to think clearly again.” He then goes on to describe the reorganization which the council recently unanimously approved reflecting mostly upon the process of its consideration. Amazingly enough, most, though by no means all, of his facts were accurate. I know because I gave them to him.

While every time that I courteously respond to LL’s request for discussion of council issues, I wind up being publicly criticized for talking to him, I may do it again if he promises to keep banging his hard head into that brick wall until he gets everything right.

Chairman, Council of the District of Columbia, Downtown
