You can see the real thing at Disneyland many nights of the week. But for fireworks of a different type, attend tonight’s school board meeting. That’s when you will get an opportunity to see the board in its frequent “deer in headlights” state, which is the look they have when they don’t know what to do.

Tonight’s topic is the expansion – or not – of the athletic field facilities at CdM High. There are two vocal sides, one that wants another 785 seats and some other upgrades, and one that doesn’t.

Tonght, there may be no more kicking the problem down the street, though I would not be surprised if that is exactly what happens. This agonizing, hand-wringing method of conducting business is typical.

I’ve come down on the side of maintaining the integrity of the neighborhood.

See (some of you) tonight.
