SRD: Letter: Rolling follies

EDITOR: Lovers of comedy can count on the Novato Follies to keep us all rolling in the aisles.

Not content with a performance in which they lambasted the North Coast Rail Authority for not repairing a bridge after having sued to prevent the NCRA from repairing anything, the Novato troubadours outdid themselves.

Tom MacDonald and Bernie Meyers were nominated by Marin County Supervisor and former Novato City Councilwomen Judy Arnold, and appointed by the Marin Board of Supervisors, as Marin’s two NCRA board members.

Both MacDonald and Meyers oppose NCRA’s state-mandated mission to restore and develop the publicly owned Northwestern Pacific Railroad.

MacDonald and Meyers argue that as board members they should be present in closed sessions when NCRA directors discuss strategy for defending NCRA against the Novato lawsuit, a suit that Arnold and the Marin supervisors support. After all, isn’t the plaintiff always allowed to sit in on the defendant’s meetings with counsel?

Not in a hundred years could the Marx Brothers have matched this, or even come close. They would be seething with envy, as would Laurel and Hardy, the Three Stooges and, of course, the Keystone Cops.
