Back to Normalcy (Or Is It New?)
I’m not going to lie to you; solely in consideration of entertainment, I miss seeing Pat Crowley at the Tiverton School Committee meetings. He gives off the aura of a TV villain, and drama requires such characters.
But for the school system, for the town, and even for the teachers, the quiet, respectful atmosphere of the audience, tonight, is undoubtedly a good thing. NEA-Tiverton President Amy Mullen has a freestanding sign (which I cannot read from my seat) sitting in the third row, but other than that, things are quiet.
I’m very curious what discussion has gone on beind closed union-hall and teacher-lounge doors. I also kinda wonder whether I give off the aura of a villain. (Surely my major-key theme music is audible.)
