Hooray for Hal!

I took time to read the petition posted on this weekend and AIM simply is providing an autonomous town council the opportunity to plan the future of Alamo without Alamo residents' and their neighborhoods' consent.

Now really, does anyone expect the majority to buy that PIG simply because its wearing lipstick?

It is one HAl of a laugh, as Hal might say,

Dear Editor,

As I read all the articles on incorporation since the subject became public in May, I remain surprised that news media has not demanded that incorporation proponents explain their plans for the structure and operations of the city of Alamo. Enough with all the emotional discussion of our "town" and let's get an explanation of exactly how the city of Alamo will operate, under what structure, with what committees and commissions, and what exact relationship with the residents.

Without a operational plan, incorporation remains a pig in lipstick as Lisa described.
