"We'll tell you what to think"

Gary Foster, illustrious Chair of the Gray Town Council, read a statement at the beginning of last week's council meeting. He called for decorum and courtesy during meetings. He found fault with the infamous "finger" incident, and said interuptions while someone is speaking will not be tolerated.
We then heard from the two Monroes, who villified our side for standing up for what we believe is right.
Curiously, Foster didn't allow anyone to speak in favor of the CEDC at the previous meeting.
Recently, Elizabeth Prata, illustrious editor of The Monument, issued an edict that not only will she no longer publish articles or letters to the editor that are sent to "other publications," but now she won't even publish a letter if the writer sends another publication a letter on the same subject! Talk about limiting free speech!
Listen up, Gray - when we want your opinion, we'll tell you what to think!
