Gericault's 60th Celebration Chronology

In the wee hours of Monday I posted an entry, HERE, asking when we were going to be seeing the much-promised and much-delayed documents for the 60th Anniversary Celebration.

Today, over on the Orange Juice Blog, contributor Gericault published an excellent chronology of the events surrounding the celebration and provides some perspective on this issue that should prove valuable if, and when, we ever see the documents in question.  You can read his summary HERE.

It is just past close of business at City Hall on Wednesday as I write this.  The documents have been promised - again - to be released by Friday.  Because of broken promises and missed deadlines in the past,  none of us are holding our breath waiting for that to happen.  However, based on comments I've received over the past couple weeks, interested parties are circling City Hall like vultures, waiting to swoop down and snatch the documents for analysis once they become available.  Because of this unacceptable delay, and because of the potential for a blockbuster scandal to bust wide open, I fear the city will be poorly served by this stalling process.  We'll see.  In the meantime, we will continue to tap our toe and hum the Jeopardy! theme...

Where is that goofball shill to give City Hall an award for transparency now?
