Instead of looking for present solutions to problems of street cred right in front of him, Charlie Tygard is reportedly hosting a reunion of living former Council members to hear their ideas for reviving the good old days when patronage ruled in place of public counsel (lately the good old days seems to include today). Is he serious or just getting the good 'ole boys back together to wax nostalgic? Not all "institutional knowledge" is worth keeping. Dare we ask if the June 7 breakfast--to include apparently at least 70 place settings--is being paid for by Metro taxpayers?
