This Is an Outrage:
Regular Meeting of the Alameda City Council October 20, 2009

Editor's Comments:

The Alameda Daily Noose and I were a little confused by the proceedings, but for the benefit of our even more confused readers, we have prepared a summary of what we believe happened at the City Council meeting. First, our newly good Evil Robot Mayor proposed a public presentation of the analysis of the initiative to build a Secret Robot Base that so many Alamedans were confused into signing. Then, other council members pushed to make the presentation less confusing by providing complete information on the legal ramifications of the initiative.

In a daring gambit, our good Evil Robot Mayor strove valiantly to create even more confusion by presenting all available information, but not all at the same time. She doubtless hoped that by doing so, the City would create at least three different levels of understanding among voters, given that some would attend one presentation, some the other, and still others would see neither. Clearly, the good Evil Robot Mayor realizes that Alamedans make their most Right-Thinking decisions when in a state of confusion.

After that, there was a bit of confusion, and when the dust had cleared, the Council had voted unanimously to present all of the information at the same time. Although this seems to indicate a lapse in confusion on the part of the mayor, we assume that she has some secret plan for introducing even more confusion at the actual presentation.
