Letter: The play must go on
The Tribune reported that the college board will meet to discuss the Community Play Consortium, “which is a partnership with the city.” (Local briefs, Saturday, Nov. 7)
It appears that the above is an attempt to recover from the failed Joint Powers Authority created by the city, college, and school district. The school district pulled out of the JPA. Thus the JPA collapsed, which created a need for the city to save face by spitting out a mouth full of high-sounding words. The Community Play Consortium sounds like a drama group. Perhaps it will produce a comedy for citizens to laugh at.
How sad but true. The above is a hateful attempt to twist language to disguise what is going on. However, such behavior has become the norm in officialdom. Defining terms are pushed aside; clear language must be avoided. Disguising reality is in vogue. The play must go on.
