I was very distressed the other night after our windmill meeting. Unlike the other liaison meetings of past months. it seemed that there was an inordinate number of windmill supporters in the house. "How can that be", I thought to myself, "when I know some of them are too lazy to leave their homes". My first clue was seeing the chairs stacked in neat rows as if someone was expecting a crowd. Previously we grabbed our own chairs and set them about in random order. And on prior occasions, I was one of the first people there, and this time, the hall was almost full even though there was twenty minutes to go until the meeting started. It was as if they were giving away free beer.
When instead of the concerns that we usually deal with, people started giving props to the corporation that started it all, and I knew something was amiss when they all started clapping their hands for the turbine that was erected that day.
Today, I discovered that the secretary or glorified secretary that works for CREC, took it upon herself, and, company slave that she is, phoned as many supporters of the turbine construction project that she could before breaking a nail. I guess I consider that stacking that deck.
What it has probably done, is to alienate even more people on the island and further the toxicity of the social environment. Way to go Trudy!
