media scrum

A large media contingent on hand Monday for the Charlottesville City Council meeting. I heard a man in the chamber say that he found the meetings "much more lively" than anything in the local theaters and 12 dollars cheaper.

I don't know whether these signs were being handed out at the door like church programs or whether the sign bearers are members of a particular group.

The first two hours of the Council meeting were spent on “SPECIAL REPORT / PUBLIC HEARING: August 11/12 Community Response and Next Steps”. Lots of speakers. Theater in the round.

eclipse
A day set to the lyrics of Mr. Bob Dylan (2:41 pm)

“Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child’s balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying”—Dylan It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)

Turtles came out for the eclipse. They were everywhere. I saw an ambulance stop for a turtle in the road. (3:26 pm)

Charlottesville City Council meeting. Pain, shouting, finger pointing. 7:36 pm.

“Disillusioned words like bullets bark
As human gods aim for their mark
Make everything from toy guns that spark
To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
It’s easy to see without looking too far
That not much is really sacred” – Bob Dylan It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)

feet on the dais
The regular business of Council was suspended. 7:36 pm
CPD
I have a cousin who wants to join the police. It is a tough career choice. Requires great care and mindfulness. 7:44 pm
