This evening I went to a meeting about the proposed closure of William's school (slated for 6 years from now). The group there was very articulate and no good defense for the closure was presented. The written report really didn't hold water. The high point was near the end when someone said they'd heard a rumor that the school board were divided on the closure issue but that a gag order had been placed on the discentors. The school board representative was asked directly if this was true and he replied "I don't think I can answer that".
We watched the new Christmas episode of Dr. Who (thanks for the download Paul). It was great, although a little more death than usual. A bit of a melancholy yule season.
