CCRs dwT #33: Loose Lips

Dylan sez…
(a short and timely jotting for CCR twits Tweeters)


dwT #33:   Having solved (really?) and been party to most of Irving’s recent costly ills (Entertainment Center fiasco, Dean International agreements, Heritage District debacle, bloated budgets, Chamber of Commerce doles, city manager employment contract) council member and wannabe-mayor Cannaday has expanded her ‘speechifying’ to the city of Dallas.

Backstory clue for the information impaired:  While Dallas could have more problems than Irving, one might assume that they really do not need or even appreciate an Irving council member speaking at their meetings and attempting to tell them how to run their city.  The same would be true if Dallas council member Dwaine Caraway attended an Irving council meeting and insisted that the Irving council have Billy Bob run the proposed Entertainment Center for ARK.  Of course, when an Irving council member wants to be mayor, speaking at any and all opportunities must seen like a good idea.  The occasion for Cannaday’s foray (as representing the Irving council?) in Dallas politics dealt with their issue of gas drilling permits...on Dallas property!  The property was not even in Irving.  But then, when one has that overwhelming desire to speak on any subject with or without knowledge or authority, the overreaching urge must be worse than an infestation of chigger bites.

Reported remarks by Cannaday were:   The council vote followed a long hearing in which dozens of drilling opponents spoke out. One was Irving City Council member Rose Cannaday.  ‘The area in question, near the Irving border, is beautiful — no place for gas wells and production facilities, she said.  You have many other options to develop in that area, she said.’”

A note from counsel: Some “Tweets” from Dylan Westie have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles….Mark Holbrook
