Now I understand why they call you "islandidiot." You'd rather admit that you can't write English, than own up to the fact that you called Bedford Biles "Chicken Little." Your lame excuse that you were referring to the article and not the author is absurd!
You said: "The fact remains the article above supposedly written by Chicken Little Biles is just hashed over rhetoric that is one-sided and serves no useful purpose." "Chicken Little" modifies "Biles," not "article." If you don't know the rudiments of English grammar, consider whether you should continue to blog. But from your writings, I believe you know English grammar and meant exactly what you said. Now you won't admit to it! By the way, on what grounds do you say Bedford didn't write the article? Are you omniscient?
I was far from being a city wrecker. I loved Marco! I spoke the truth; everything I posted on CARES' website was backed by links to academic and government studies. Did you care to check? That's more than can be said for CM Moss and Councilor Tucker both of whom accused citizens of planting tons of asbestos under the sands of Veterans Park, or Public Utility Director Joel who published scientifically inaccurate pollution data on the City website for all the world to see! It's more than can be said for ex-Councilman Arceri who whipped his Celebrate Marco crowd into such a frenzy that they called for their opponents to be shot. (Did you ever hear of CARES members acting in like manner?) It's more than can be said for Mr. Arceri when he duped condo owners into believing that their utility rates would go up if they didn't elect sycophants who would continue the STRP. (They did as they were told ... and their rates are going up! Next time they may not be so gullible.)
Who was trying to save the city and who to wreck it when CARES demanded that Quality Enterprises 1) pay for all asbestos cleanup costs in Veterans' Park and along Collier Blvd.; 2) indemnify the City against all future asbestos-related litigation; and, 3) donate $300,000 into a fund to develop Veterans' Park only to find CM Moss arguing against every demand CARES made. CM Moss actually argued on behalf of QE and against the city! Who was the wrecker and who the saviour? These actions occurred during the Clean Air suit mediation; read the record!
Try remembering the facts, islandeye, whoever you are. You might just learn from them!
P.S. I am not privy to Mr. Putnam's finances but I never heard him complain that the world had done him wrong ... certain Marco politicians who can't keep their hands out of his back pocket (and everyone else's back pocket!) ... yes, but not the world. John Putnam stands behind his words and deeds and signs his blogs which you do not. As far as I know, he has never declared bankruptcy as have many of your past and present city councilors!
