There are many wonderful things about our city as well as assorted issues associated with being an urban community and annoying idiocies that occasionally litter the course of public affairs.
But I have to say that trying to hold a community meeting on a contentious but unproven development plan for Muhlenberg Hospital on the very night when the town's basketball team is in the final game for the STATE TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS beggars the imagination.
If all of the Muhlenberg proposals stars were aligned, you tell me if it would make one bit of difference if the glory of the Cardinals' basketball prowess could have the center stage spotlight ALONE for one night and hold the damned town hall meeting any other night.
I have an inkling if someone had said something to the JFK folks it might have been planned differently.
Whatever, it's an example of the kind of tin-eared thinking Plainfield needs to do away with.
