“I’m On A [Beer] Tour with Common, My Man”

in Features by

So perhaps this title needs some explaining; it’s a riff on a lyric from Kanye West’s song “The Glory” which in turn was a riff on a lyric from “Award Tour” by A Tribe Called Quest.

The thought of thirty has been looming for a while now. I have had a few friends who joined that club already and it has been in the back of my mind for the last few years; in fact, I’ve been struggling with my age since I hit a quarter century. My friend, the blossoming YouTube star that I wrote about earlier this year turned thirty in January and shared thirty things she learned…

Every week, before the regular council meeting, there’s another, secret meeting. There’s no press, no public agenda, and no public record of what decisions were made. At first that sounds suspicious. But, they say, City Council has deal with personnel issues or ongoing negotiations that need privacy. Fair enough!
