CCR 07-28-14: Of Plans and Penalties

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

     REALM UPDATE:  This quarterly update of activities in QueenB VDs realm is brought to you by OliverMcMillan, a single source servant of the queen.  "For all your tennis needs, OM does the deed!"

     1) Realm Encroachment: When staff of the CCR last posted on this topic, it appeared the presidential search committee for the Irving chamber of commerce would not follow the distorted selection process QueenB VD first used when attempting to hire Steve Sarkozy from Bellevue, WA as the city manager.  Instead, it appeared the chamber search committee (which the queen was a member of) would do the right, legal and responsible thing by re-opening the entire interview process.  However, this did not happen.  (In the chamber’s hiring case, the wrong action prevailed as queenly edicts managed to possibly poison rational thinking.)

     Citizens of the queen’s realm should never discount the influence that her harpies might have if she surreptitiously demands her edicts be blindly followed. 

     What happened?  With the chamber search committee deadlocked and split as to the proper avenue to trek down, the queen’s committee-harpies (in training as they have not earned their wings) appeared to invoke, with the queen’s blessing, the Mother Superior of Flying Harpies to circle over the committee chairman’s head to break the impasse by siding with the committee-harpies.  The threat of a Flying Harpy attack on the chamber membership, by the queen’s harpy forces, could bring chaos to this organization and create a fracture similar to the one the queen reigns over on the Irving City council.

     While the individual selected, to be the chamber’s CEO and president, will bring all the zest and zeal of a new puppy with a forever home to the position, there will be one significant obstacle in her path…the potential wrath from QueenB VD.  And for this reason she and all of the business interests of the chamber should be wary.  

     Already espousing the city council has some thorny budget issues to resolve, the time, attention and funding of any future chamber proposals might have to take a back seat behind her priority for the refurbishing of the Twin Wells golf course…as if this will happen.

      2)  Flying Harpies To Conduct Roundup:  With her realm ever expanding (city, chamber, school district), QueenB VD wants to ensure there are no possible pretenders to her throne.  With this in mind, she has directed the Mother Superior of Flying Harpies to gather the flock and seek out any dissident or sass-talking peon…especially those who might possibly be suffering from the queen’s suspected condition of NPD.(1)  This measure is being taken since their can only be one QueenB in the realm bearing a NPD condition.  

     Those individuals nabbed by harpies, in the ‘meme’ personality roundup, will be committed to sessions of verbal-water boarding(Think Idi Amin without the beheading.)  After several sessions, individuals will be assigned to work at one of the queen’s relocation sites.  The punishment delivered to these peons (which is not considered to be a form of torture by the queen) will leave individuals with a condition of only being able to utter: "I’m just a cog in the queen’s wheel and no one is equal to or as glorious as her."  

     3)  Queenly Fitness:  Recognizing many of her subjects have grown soft, out-of-shape and not aligned with her personal conditioning of always being photo op ready, the queen has dictated that: a) All golf clubs will be confiscated; b) All loud plaid shorts, socks and t-shirts will be burned; and c) All shoes with cleats must be relinquished.  Future possession of any of these items will be met with draconian penalties.  (This forfeiture of equipment also coincides with her plans for Twin Wells.)

     These measures are designed, by the queen, to instill in all her subjects the advantages and love for playing tennis.  Racquets will be issued to all peons along with a pair of white shorts, white Izod® shirts, white socks, white sweatbands and white Nike® sneakers.  New tennis courts will be constructed in every neighborhood after all the pools, splash parks and swing/slide sets are razed

     All subjects will be required to play tennis a minimum of three times per week and keep accurate records of their participation and progress.  (Consider this an edict!)

     Lessons will be provided for first-time tennis players.  When the level of play for any peon meets the Queen’s Standards of Tennis Etiquette and Play, they will be allowed to enter the queen’s lottery to win a chance to play a game on her royal Tennis Center courts…if construction is completed on the old Texas Stadium site by her single source developer, OM.  

     Two peons per year will have the grand honor and recognition to represent their neighborhoods on the queen’s courts.  (Think "Hunger Games" without the death option.)  At all other times, the royal courts will be used and occupied by the queen’s Pet Rocks, designated Flying Harpies and those sugar daddy campaign donors and contractors who polish her royal scepter and do business with the city.

     Warning: Any subject reported playing golf on a private or municipal course outside the queen’s realm will be banished to the Tower of Obedience where they will receive extensive re-indoctrination lessons on pledging fealty to all the queen’s edicts.  All golf equipment found in the possession of transgressors will be confiscated and the metal clubs melted to shape new talons for her Flying Harpy flock.

     4)  Upcoming Queenly Exploits:  1) With golf no longer a sanctioned activity or sport in the queen’s realm, the old Twin Wells golf course will be bulldozed.  Construction will commence on the QueenB VD Photo Op Museum, on the site, as soon as a single source developer is identified; 2) When the queen’s ‘fluffy’ ethics policy is approved by her Pet Rock collection, the doctrine will be printed and bound in little red books for every subject to carry on their person at all times; 3) Believing the glow of her soul must shine across the realm, the queen will institute a new wave of consciousness for all to follow in order to be worthy of living in her kingdom.  Those accepting her queenly prescribes will be saved from having their taxes raised and their first born relegated to mucking Flying Harpy stables.  

     Edifices will be constructed in each neighborhood for peons to attend daily services that reflect on the greatness of the queen.  These facilities will be known as Fellowship Halls of Queenly Etherealness.  The 95 theses, of blind adoration for the queen as inspired and dictated by the queen, will also be included in the little red books, containing her ethics policy, for all to commit to memory.  (Thesis #1:  There is no queen other than QueenB VD.)

     While the queen has a lot on her plate this summer, she will also be very busy screening her Flying Harpy flock to determine which of her harpies will be weak enough to be selected as a Pet Rock in the next city election cycle.  She is wanting a new Pet Rock, who has a bit of fire in their breath, to counterbalance the tepid oratory skills of all her current Pet Rocks. 

     Irving, Texas…it’s not Disneyland, but a genuine reality park of Pet Rocks, Flying Harpies, Sugar Daddy Donors, and QueenB VD.

CCR 07-24-14: Prune Danish Redux

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

     Heeeees Back!  And it didn’t take neophyte Pet Rock and consigliere for QueenB VD, John Danish, very long to hit his old stride of bloviating, rambling and spinning non-sequitur babble at every Irving City council meeting.

     Staff of the CCR has already recognized Danish’s return with the introduction of the "John Danish BINGO" game. (For those just joining us, the card and rules are posted on the CCR blog site in the 07-07-14 report.)  

     Additionally, Danish has been mentioned in several tweets and reports since being elected as the Anglo representative for the gerrymandered Hispanic district of south Irving.

     The return of Danish has caused staff of the CCR to experience PTSD (Political Tension Stress Disorder).  The condition reached its peak this week and we finally succumbed to rummaging through old issues (1991 to be exact) of the CCR.  Even though Danish has appeared in CCR reports since the 80’s, we were hard pressed to see where the ‘old’ Danish was any different from the new-zombie Danish, currently stalking the council chambers chewing the fat off redundant rhetoric.

     To wit, staff of the CCR picked just the following two items, from old reports, to demonstrate the truism of the adage: "The more things change, the more they stay the same."  And one would have to agree, there is no difference between the old Danish and the ‘new’ Danish…other than his driving a Jaguar now instead of a Cadillac. 
FROM the 04-18-91 CCR:  
     "Remedial Government — Pass the gag bag.  Councilthing Danish has fired his mouth off again with the force of a cannon gunning down a gnat.  Pegging the outer limits of the gag meter at the last council session when debating beer sales in Texas Stadium, Councilthing Danish used every know political cliche uttered during the past 200-years.  Quoting Jefferson, Franklin, the Bill of Rights, Lincoln and the Pilgrims, he makes Sen. Joseph Biden seem like a research scholar for the Freedom Foundation.
     Never at a loss for someone else’s words and perhaps lacking any genuine creativity and thoughts, The CCR wants to assist Councilthing Danish the next time he whips out a freshly typed council speech.  When discussing the "life and death" issue of imposing parental rating guides for rock concerts in Texas Stadium, he could use the following filler material.
     "Four score and seven beers ago…"
     "Ask not what a beer would do for you—
       but what you would do for a beer."
     "A Bud in the hand is better than two in the Busch."
     "Thou shalt not Schlitz."

     Have you ever wondered if Councilthing Danish has the same sentiments and cliche-ridden rhetoric on file for the drinking of wine in Marino, Italy?  Perhaps not, since he might consider Italy a "safe drinking" zone.  It is, after all, over 5,000 miles from Irving.  Besides, who would tell?"     

     The above should have worked well for Danish as it contained two references to past presidents, god and a very familiar adage.  Unfortunately, staff of the CCR did not get the position of speech writer for Danish in 1991…his loss, of course.  We firmly believe the rationale for not obtaining the job was: Danish would rather spend other people’s money (taxes) than dip into his personal bucks.  And this didn’t surprise us.

     Knowing Danish always has his eye on the ball — at least the next political-move ball — the following portion of a previous CCR report (again 1991) captures the essence of Danish always wanting to be in the political spotlight.  Similar to QueenB VD, the most dangerous position to be in is between either of them and a TV camera or microphone.  Is it any wonder that both do not have burned retinas from all the photo flashes?

FROM the 01-19-91 CCR: 

     While there are reams and reams of previous postings in old CCR reports regarding Danish, staff of the CCR had to pop a few caps, after just reading the two above, to ease our PTSD.

     Considering how Danish is back to his old form of puerile oration, isn’t it time for the city council to institute a gag order on his performances?  This certainly would not limit his ‘free speech,’ but rather would spare the citizenry his ridiculous speech.

CCR 07-21-14: Ride 'em Cowgirl

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

      One thing that brings great joy to staff of the CCR is trudging through info received and attempting to determine if it might be fact, fiction or rumor.  While we would like to wordsmith more rumors (snicker), it appears most of the items received turn out to be facts.  

     And thus, staff was genuinely surprised this past week when two rumors turned out not to be fact, but one did lead to the discovery of a factual consideration.

     The first item staff had to consider was: Is it true the Four Seasons Resort would provide a presidential suite each weekend for a year to QueenB VD — for her personal use — if she managed to have the council provide the nearly $500,000 funding again next year for the sparsely attended Texas Wild tennis tournament in Irving?  Probably false, but a good rumor!  

     The queen will not need the Four Seasons Resort’s skimpy accommodations, as she will be having her personal Tennis Center built on the Texas Stadium site.  The current schematics for her Tennis Center call for a royal viewing suite, in addition to a 1,200 square foot attached living area, to host galas, development sponsors (OliverMcMillian, Hines Reality, etc.) and political campaign sugar daddy donors (Simon, Ellis clan, Ryan, Levy, etc.).  Just think of her Tennis Center as…Wimbledon Stadium with a bedroom!

     Also, there is no truth to the rumor that QueenB VD was banned from riding horses at the Las Colinas Equestrian Center.  This rumor had its foundation in that every time she returned to the center, she was riding a dead horse.  What confused folks was the ‘dead horse’ the queen continued to ride was ‘her ethics policy’ revision she has been trumpeting the entire reign of her almost-service to the city.

     Attempting to keep the peons and serfs of the realm pleased, the queen periodically intones her magical words (especially during campaigns) of transparency, ethics reform, and no more single source developers.  Right now, it appears the queen is batting 0-3!  Isn’t making another attempt to score PR points on her ethics revisions just more royal blather without substance, or even the reality of reaching a necessary or needed conclusion?

     QueenB VD has had her questionable revised ethics policy studied, reviewed, cussed and discussed in council work sessions, public forums (with scant attendance or attention), and mentioned at every drop of her tiara.  It appears mane flipping will again cause her tiara to fall at the July 23 council work session, and once more as a ‘public input’ item on the July 24 council agenda.  The latest revision to her ethics policy was December 12, 2012…meaning extensive photo ops and traveling around the country on the city’s dime must have prevented a more timely, thorough review and consideration until now. 

     And why does the queen want to pass her implausible ‘revised ethics policy’ to supplement the policy the city has been using with due diligence all these years?  (Before you answer this rather simplistic question, think King Henry VIII and what he did to those [especially wives] who did not pledge total loyalty or fealty to his every whim and fancy.  That should cause your head to roll!)

     Breaking down the draconian issues the queen attempts to pump into a rather good and stable city ethics policy, consider just the following two ‘head rollers’ she has in her revised policy:

Placing a cap on campaign contributions. (One would have to believe queenly edicts might outweigh  or supersede the US Supreme Court as this could be considered a limitation of ‘free speech.’)  Could the queen really be serious about this revision considering the buckets and bundles of cash from sugar daddy contributors and those special interest groupies having an agenda for her to pursue?  How will she manage to skirt around those disclosure issues while having strings attached to her royal scepter?

Contract disclosure of all parties involved when seeking a city contract.  (This sounds good, but how does a business initially know which subcontractors might be necessary or determined at the time of filing the contractual agreement specifications?  And then, the requirement to report any changes, during the life of the contract, is also proposed. Overkill?)  The queen wants to know details that are unknown, nor critical considering the stipulations and requirements already included in all city agreements.  (Maybe she wants to see every name possible to ensure no political enemy is doing business with the city!  Sorry Herbie and Billy Bob, you’ll need to take your traveling flimflam show elsewhere,)

     When one takes a magnifying glass to the ridiculous issues QueenB VD wants to burden an already good ethics policy with, there has to be an ulterior motive.  And as one reads all of the fluffy and constrictive items she has proposed — which could burden, restrict, or be detrimental to the efficient operations of city functions — the "why" question pops up again.  One possible answer could be the queen is attempting, via the use of  this policy revision sham, to compile a "gotcha" list for use against those who oppose her edicts or have worked/campaigned against her.  Would this really be an irrational thought?  (This could be much like the old Richard Nixon dirty tricks bag and black list he maintained.  Citizens should be glad the queen doesn’t have the IRS, NSA, or the FBI under her jurisdiction.)  

     All of the queen’s policy revision efforts could boil down to being a tremendous egotistical-smoke screen, to keep her ‘cloak of invisibility’ whole, by blathering she cannot get her inane ethics provisions passed (which shouldn’t be) due to a cranky council that will not bend to her self-anointed supreme will.

     Actually, citizens would be better served if the queen would just disclose all of her private meetings with developers or those who have or might be seeking business with the city.  Wouldn’t this shine a brighter light on some of her activities and a call for genuine ethical review and reform?

     Now, if the queen did all this, it would be an alive horse she could prance around the city on for all those photo ops!

CCR 07-17-14: You Are Entering...

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

     With Irving’s murky political waters, have you ever felt that you maybe waded into Rod Sterling’s "Twilight Zone?"  This might happen if you visit one of Irving’s more prolific and acrid FaceBook blogs.

     (Blog not identified to protect innocent readers of the CCR from encountering what is, on many occasions, a literary travesty attempting to discuss issues.)  

     Sometimes on this blog, it seems as if reality has taken a vacation and summer replacement interns are posting like part-time Tea Party drones vapidly spinning information faster than a dreidel on Hanukkah.  

     The "discussion" of issues boils down to two camps — those who post based on facts and those who attempt to further the agenda of QueenB VD by hacking out a profusion of words designed to appear factual.  The final outcome would be similar to re-titling a game: "Truth or Dare (to be factual)."  And the queen’s loyal minions dare anyone to disagree with their assessment, or infer they do not know what they are talking about.

     What with social media/IM/e-mail capable of spewing mass information (some of which could even be considered useful) and an abundance of misinformation as observed on this blog, one has to wonder if the posters are living in Sterling’s political-galaxy of nightmares.  Clearly, what is posted by a few of these individuals, in their fog-of-spin-assistance to the queen, gives the sordid distorted illusion of being factual.

     A recent "discussion" on this blog for a really hot local topic featured individuals who would have you believe they know ‘everything about something.’  These folks could win the grand prize on "Truth or Dare (to be factual)"…for the absurd spinning posted.  

     While one sometimes finds a very small kernel of fact in the postings, the overwhelming literary fiber of QueenB VDs minions consist of talking point-spin dressed to look like undeniable and unquestionable fact.  And for a weary reader, be sure to remember to never question the validity of certain posters on this blog should you decide to leave comments.  (Hell hath no fury like a ticked off Flying Harpy.)

    Let’s break all this down and look at the issue in question: Whistle Stop farmers market/food truck/beer garden with a single source MOU is currently being fine tuned for city council consideration.  This development would be on the old lumber yard site the city owns in ‘beautiful downtown Irving.’

  • Whistle Stop Partnership (WSP) has three partners: Marvin Randle, Joe Mapes and Oscar Ward.
  • Marvin Randle and Joe Mapes strongly supported Oscar Ward’s bid for a city council seat.
  • Marvin Randle and Joe Mapes vigorously supported Van Duyne for mayor.
  • Vigorous support of VanDuyne and Ward would infer money, sign placements, newspaper ads, PAC activities, meetings, roboCalls, collecting special interest campaign donations, etc.
  • VanDuyne won and currently serves as mayor.
  • Ward won and currently serves on the city council. 
  • Ward is still a partner of WSP.
  • Ward will be able to sit in all meetings of WSP, make recommendations and approve what will ultimately be submitted in the MOU for consideration or approval by the Irving city council.
  • Ward will not be able to sit in any city council meetings or discuss the WSP proposal with council members or city staff…or the real media (DMN).
  • Ward’s actions while tiptoeing on being legal definitely carries the aromatic stench of a highly perceived ethical conflict.
  • Ward may have the distinction of being the only elected city councilman, who while serving, to ever have a fiduciary interest in a city funded project.
  • City was never sued by WSP, but apparently was threatened, bullied and probably strong-armed into providing an exclusive, single source MOU for this project.
  • VanDuyne and Ward have previously been very harsh and extremely vocal critics of single source developers doing business with the city.
  • The city, from all outward appearances, will be responsible for all capital outlay cost for the construction of the WSP venue. (Estimates approach $2M) 
  • There has been no determination of how much, if any, of a return the city will receive on the rather extensive capital investment for the WSP venture.
  • The WSP MOU is exclusive and valid for six months.
  • Doesn’t the unnamed blog, described in this report, appear to be an unpaid PR arm for WSP?

DARE (to be factual):
  • While posting and extolling all the wonderful unprovable virtues of the WSP venture and what this venue might produce, did an individual blogger fail to mention a potential vested interest in the project due to a spouse having performed contract work for one of the partners?
  • Will a talking points shill, Mother Superior of Flying Harpies, for the mayor sleep well at night after declaring the WSP venture will surpass sliced bread as the new manna necessary to save ‘beautiful downtown Irving?’
  • Does the WSP  group actually have the benevolent interests of the city in mind, as opposed to profit margins, as their driving force?
  • If this venture is as remarkably transparent as touted, then why are Tea Party-ish bloggers allowing "crony capitalism," funded by the city, to be the financial lynchpin for the project instead of personal/business investment as most entrepreneur efforts are required to be? 
  • Where is the cogent documentation that a venture of this nature will survive, not be a drain on other city assets, or require any future financial assistance from the city? 
  • Why are bloggers, who take exception to the comments made by the Kool-Aid sippers of WSP, VanDuyne and Ward, dismissed with utter venom, personal attacks and even language polite ladies of the community are unfamiliar with?
  • Why doesn’t any of the queen’s minions address the elephant (Tea Party species?) in the room regarding the highly perceived and community acknowledged ethical conflict of a WSP partner serving on the council and reaping financial gain from a city funded project?

     If readers of the CCR feel their heads are in an ethereal spin zone from playing "Truth or Dare (to be factual)," turn your computer off, swig a dose of the queen’s mead, and understand why some bloggers on this site have only one literary agenda…to do the queen’s bidding.  And this means posting talking points only favorable to the agenda the queen happens to be promoting at that time…between photo ops. 

     Then, while blasted on Kool-Aid will you know what it is like to be a minion in the queen’s shill force.  And if you later exercise due diligence with favorable blog postings on this site, you may be able to earn your Flying Harpy cadet wings.

CCR 07-13-14: Ten Realities?

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

    WARNING:  The following CCR report has nothing to do with CBS television, David Letterman, "Later Show with David Letterman," or Al Gore.  This report is the CCRs feeble attempt to lift/borrow/utilize a proven technique to clearly demonstrate just how great things have been in ‘beautiful downtown Irving’ during the reign of QueenB VD.

     After all, the queen has been incessantly zipping around north Irving — only pausing briefly in south Irving for a July 4th parade — conducting photo op after photo op during the past three years.  Certainly, during all this time she has managed to do something remarkable or noteworthy for the city.  Wouldn’t you think?  And with three more years remaining in her reign, greater accomplishments of grandeur are possible…right? 

     Looking back over the past three years, the CCR proudly presents the:

Top 10 QueenB VD "almost-Accomplishments"

10)  While in Las Vegas sealing the deal with a single source consultant, OliverMcMillan, to design a Tennis Center on the old Texas Stadium site, she didn’t have a ‘farm to bet’ so she wagered and lost revamping ‘beautiful downtown Irving’ in a game of Texas Hold’em.

 9)  Embedded loyal harpies on the chamber of commerce presidential search committee to prepare for laying siege to this organization which she would include in her egotistical-realm.

 8)  Has assumed the tutelage of her new Pet Rock by instructing him in the fine art of "whistling while not voting" for an upcoming city funded project involving a primary supporter of hers and the Pet Rock’s two partners in the Whistle Stop farmers market/food truck/beer garden venture.

 7)  With a campaign war chest overflowing with special interest bucks and no ‘after election campaign report’ filed at this date, the queen feigned wanting her "ethics policy" brought to a vote by the council by not actually placing the item on an agenda for voting.

 6)  Al Gore’s global warming hysteria managed to creep into a council meeting when a couple Pet Rocks thawed, thereby causing her to not have the votes necessary to throw a monkey wrench in ARK’s plan to construct an office tower on the Entertainment Center site.

 5)  Went on a rampage due to citizens photographing her royal horses’ appearance, in the July 4th  parade, which captured the steed’s posterior pointing north while the queen was also looking north. (This image caused major confusion, disorientation and stress among all the young kids along the parade route as they couldn’t fathom which ass was actually leading the parade!)(1)

 4)  Sponsored the "Best QueenB VD Photo Op Contest" to raise funds and awareness for NPD, AHD and SEM(2) conditions which are so near and dear to her heart and soul for all the obvious reasons.

 3)  Realizing the possible upcoming ‘retirement’ (say amen) of a couple Pet Rocks in her collection, she designated the Mother Superior of Flying Harpies to chat up potential Pebbles to serve as Pet Rocks in her royal court when the time nears.

 2)  With a new city manager preparing to report for duty, directed that the Tower of Obedience be re-stocked for use in case he fails to follow her every edict.

And the Number 1 QueenB VD "almost-Accomplishment" during her first three years on the throne was:

 1)  Like the previous city manager handling the razing of swimming pools, she would bulldoze the Twin Wells golf course to build her royal Tennis Center on those hallowed grounds in that distant portion of her realm…far, far, far southeast Irving.  

     The above potential action for the Twin Wells golf course would allow the queen to have a world-class "branding" for the city’s new International Putt-Putt Golf Course and Photo Op Museum constructed on the old Texas Stadium site.  (Take that Jerry Jones and Salesmanship Club of Dallas, saith the queen!)

     With all the above achievements, Irving residents can only gasp at what might be in store for the next three years.  Knowing her "invisibility cloak" is still functioning, the CCR sometimes works at a disadvantage ferreting out the queen’s real motives for all the inane actions she takes…not including the photo ops, of course, which are self-explanatory. 

     However, with astute readers of the report, moles burrowing deep under city hall and observing Flying Harpy formations, staff of the CCR will continue their attempts at keeping readers current on what is actually happening in ‘beautiful downtown Irving.’  And you will be the first to know when the queen plans to raze the entire Heritage District to construct a secondary royal Tennis Center.

     Irving…where par for the course is having 3.1 Tennis Centers per capita under QueenB VD.

CCR 07-08-14: B-13, N-42, O-69

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

      Sometimes, city council meetings are just too much to bear.  What with all the political weasels scurrying around spending your tax bucks and funding ‘crony capitalism’ projects, this leaves little time to truly appreciate the literary culture and oratory triviality of QueenB VDs consigliere, John Danish.  

     To assist with the keeping track of his verbose, loquacious and often non-sequitur remarks, let’s play a little game...John Danish BINGO

     Yes, make a few copies of the following John Danish BINGO card for use during each council work session or regular meeting.  

     The game is easy to play.  Just mark an “X” in a square when Danish utters one of his “what did he just say” phrases.  Any CCR reader who completes a horizontal, diagonal or vertical line during a meeting will receive ‘special recognition’ (if desired) in a future CCR report.  If we have any Sonic® coupons remaining, we may even throw those into the winners pot for your due diligence and efforts in playing along.  Also, you will automatically be entered in the Grand Prize Sweepstakes for a year’s free pass on DART’s Orange Line…….BINGO!

TO:  CCR Tweet-less:

Here’s what you recently missed by not following: 
Dylan Westie   @DylanWestie1  on Twit-er.

Has QueenB VD sprinkled her NPD-sands on the Chamber presidential search committee members loyal to her, ergo clogging the entire search process?

..................Mark Holbrook

Note: Irving's "queen" possibly believes each and every realm in the city should bow and swear fealty to her ever demanding demands.
