The only way this headline could have surprised me is if it said:

Council approves measure to reduce its size


Council votes to cut its pay


Jim Motznik performs impromptu strip dance on council floor and rubs his bald head all over Twanda Carlisle

THAT would shock me. Voting to not cut their size down? Not so much.

    I just threw up in my mouth at the thought of a naked Jim Motznik. Thanks for that.

    Can anyone understand what Councilmembers Bodack and Shields’ quotes from the article?

    Bodack: “The bill was not put out there for the right reasons,” said Councilman Len Bodack. “Maybe it was angling politically. … I think somebody is trying to give the public a snow job.”

    I think he means:

    Originally some citizens were going to have an intiative on the ballot to reduce council from 9 members to 5. Motznik countered with a reduction to 7. Then, the original never made it on to the ballot for technical reasons. Therefore, they no longer needed their own resolution to reduce it to only 7. But Motznik, having had enough bad press, decided to keep his bill to look like a man of the people.

    …or something like that.

    How could Motznik be in the council chambers to vote? Last time I saw him, he was running through downtown buildings trying to get away from a news crew?
