I had a dream

By From page A5 | October 30, 2013

EDITOR:

I had a dream a couple of nights ago. The dream had the candidates for EID’s Division 2 and 4 sitting down with the Mountain Democrat’s Editorial Board. My attention was focused on one candidate. He was a dead ringer for “Leave it to Beaver’s” Eddie Haskell. But he was being addressed as “Mr. Prada.”

Eddie Haskell (Mr. Prada?) was relaxed, at ease and more even-tempered than had been demonstrated in some of his writings and behaviors at recent EID Board meetings and Cost of Services Committee activities. He didn’t holler and shout and storm out. He was well-behaved for the Mountain Democrat’s Editorial Board interview. He did not falsely reassert that agricultural water was 17 times less than residential water. He did not falsely reassert that most EID employees would be getting 7 percent pay raises. Eddie Haskell (Mr. Prada?) was really well-behaved.

The Mountain Democrat Editorial Board bought it. Eddie Haskell endorsed.
