May 9, 2007. Why would the mayor have to go on record to clarify he "loves Christmas" if the City has done nothing wrong that would suggest otherwise? Just explain how spending tax money on lawyers to send a certified letter threatening legal action against my display before it had ever been built enhances the season for your citizens. Clarify how your plan to continue illegally applying the nuisance code only to my lights is the right thing to do. And spell out how your plan to deal with the increased traffic in 2007 (if there's a problem, shut him down) is so much better than actually coming up with a workable solution that helps my neighbors.

I can't fool the public, and neither can you. If you're right, all you have to do is explain yourself.
