Timely Legislative Breakfast

The stately Lord Jeff Inn, Amherst Town Common (at least until Amherst College renames it)

The Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting their annual networking breakfast of heavy hitters -- aka state & local legislators and business leaders -- at the Lord Jeff Inn this Thursday morning 7:15 AM to 9:00 AM to discuss public policy issues.

What better timing than a couple weeks before the epic November 8th election where federal, state and local issues will be voted on in perhaps the best local turnout in history.

Representatives Susannah Whipps Lee,  John Scibak and Ellen Story will be on hand as well as Senate President Stan Rosenberg, who recently endorsed a yes vote on the recreational marijuana ballot question.

But no, pot brownies are not on the menu.

You folks do know that the blanket matter was BEFORE the germ theory of disease.

What's next, Lord Jeff gave the Indians radioactive blankets?

Why should turnout be so big this time? It's not as if there's any competitive races in Massachusetts, nor any doubt about how the state will go in the Presidential race. Voting in Massachusetts is about as effective as voting in North Korea; the results have been determined well in advance.

Pot question. $67 Million School Override Question.

Perhaps pessimists like you should not bother to vote.
