Last week I was incensed when I read on a Facebook political blog that the county was shutting down public comment at the Board of Supervisors’ meetings.  Then I read a little better and realized they were not stopping it, but seriously restricting it. So I expressed my outrage online.

Then I read a little better…  Then later I did my homework… 

Gee, I hate it when I mouth-off before I know what I am talking about!

What I thought was an attempt to squelch the public voice was an effort to to stop abuse of the process by a few.
