Checking in from a Seminar
So, at my employer’s insistence, I’m attending the GetMotivated seminar in Providence. Colin Powell is speaking, and he opened by thanking Providence for its involvement in his charity. When he specifically thanked former Mayor David Cicilline, the audience roundly booed… and were softly chastised by the speaker for bringing politics into it.
I have to say, though, that I can’t agree that some public involvement in a charity undoes real and palpable damage to the people of a city.
