Small Town Politics

I’m staying in Saranac Lake in northern New York. This is one small town. Last night I witnessed a public meeting in the nearby town of Lake Placid (there’s also a movie!).

The meeting was discussing the proposal to change a local street from 1-way back to 2-way traffic. It had to be one of the most irrelevant public meetings I’ve ever witnessed. The passion in the room was insane, people were talking about this street like their very lives depended upon it.

I figure it must be a great place to live if the most important thing going on in town is converting a street from 1 to 2 way traffic! 🙂
