P-D columnist Bill McClellan wrote the best summary of the goings on in Ellisville I've seen so far. He did it with humor and truth, two things which are often the same.
You can have good government or fun government. I am in the fun government camp.
When you have fun government, you have participatory democracy. People show up for meetings. They get angry. They shout. They pay attention.
Ellisville is the latest example of fun government.
The mayor has been impeached.
To be fair about this, you can impeach a mayor even with a good government. But with a good government, the impeachment would have something to do with malfeasance. Maybe even fraud.
In a fun government, it’s Mad Hatter stuff.
And there's so much more fun from McClellan
