"Just one more question. . . ."

At the last city council meeting, several of our members did a great job of raising questions about Rosemead's handling of "A Mighty Wind," which is discussed below.

One interesting comment from last week's city council meeting was from Mayor Gary Taylor.  He said that "it was obvious" that the fence lacked proper anchoring.  Which, of course, begs the question:  If he, in his professional judgement as a building contractor, saw that the fence was unsafe, then why didn't he, in his role as a Rosemead city council member, take action to make sure those fences wouldn't blow down?

Is he so blindly cheerleading for Wal-Mart that he can't muster enough of his own will to correct their contractors when he sees a situation that he knows to be unsafe?
