CCRs dwT #52: Birds of a Feather

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


dwT #52:  On this day when folks might give thanks for many things, it is only appropriate that the CCR gives thanks for the ability to apologize for ruffling feathers.

Backstory clue for the information impaired:   In ZAP! #142, the ex-mayor was taken to task for his previous activities while serving and his current endeavor to have a petition drive that might provide for Geezer’s to utilize their city homestead exemption as the basis for their city property taxes.  While there is no dispute -- in our opinion -- as to the assertions made in ZAP! #142 regarding potential motives and timing of this activity by the ex-mayor, we do wish to offer a significant apology.

     In ZAP! #142, the following comment was registered concerning the ex-mayor’s activities: “… wings need to be clipped on this still fluttering political albatross.”

     With special acknowledgement to the AAA (American Albatross Association), the CCR would apologize for this characterization that could demean all albatrosses.  It was not the intent of ZAP! #142 to ruffle the feathers of these fine fowls by aligning them with a self-serving politico -- ex-mayor or current mayor for that matter.  These fluffy fowls deserve better treatment and understanding.

     For future reports, the CCR will refrain from comparing politicos with any member of the albatross family.  Instead, we will revert to a more appropriate member of the animal kingdom when reflecting on the devious activities of a politico...the weasel.

     And special thanks to the readership on this day.  Your continued support is appreciated even when the reports ruffle your feathers.  

     Now, it’s nearly time for the annual stuffing (CCR staff) followed by a comatose football-session in the Lay-Z-Boy. 

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
