No, it's not an official Seven Days write-up. I was working while this meeting was going on. Not sure if one of the writers made it there.
But Haik Bedrosian showed up, and posted this meeting round-up on BurlingtonPol.
*Councilor Decelles spoke against keeping Al Jazeera on BurlingtonTelecom, citing veterans who live in Ward Seven. In a moment of muddledlogic, he said he would never subscribe to Burlington Telecom becauseof them. Actually, Paul will never subscribe because he doesn't believein the city owning a telecom company, whether they have Al Jazeera ornot.
*Several speakers including James Vos reminded the committee that Al Jazeera has a large audience in Israel.
*One lady reminded councilor Decelles that veterans fought for our freedoms, including freedom of speech.
*Owen Mulligan said it was pathetic that BT no longer takes cash payments.
The Free Press has a more thorough but less colorful account. There will be another public meeting in a few weeks. Stay tuned!
