World’s most sly reference to ‘1984’

For the record, I like John Fredrich and look forward to whatever else he will say or do in the campaign. He taught at Gunn for a number of years, starting just after I left. He ran for council several times before I was a voter here.

My first observation, however, slightly negative or critical, is that he probably over-estimates his efficacy in that even being elected to office, in this environment, would not be equivalent to running Sim City — he brings up ideas, for instance at the briefing by staff (City Manager) and six other candidates that the others cannot follow, or would not follow.

I probably have the same fault. Maybe we will both get seated, then there will be a knock on the door, a figure will enter and say:

Hi, guys, I’m the actual boss here. Submit, or..well, submit.

It’s a play on the word Orwell.

Five thousand people have reviewed this:

Not sure what this is, methinks it’s a clue:

3. Meanwhile and time running out, Lessa Bourchard has a new piece at Dragon Theatre, must see, probably topping Philadelphia Story at Stanford Theatre
