The seats in the gallery of the City Council chambers in Cambridge MA City Hall are changing. They were all red theater seats which left red dye on light colored shirts and jackets. Now the City is replacing them with cheap plastic folding chairs from the library. Compare this with the plush leather chairs for the City Councilors.
At each meeting the City Council provides taxpayer funded catered meals for the Councilors their children friends and guests. Without an invitation no members of the public which pays for these catered meals are permitted to join in these feasts. Cambridge is the City of Equals. Some people are more equal than others. Cambridge MA imitates art, George Orwell's "Animal Farm.
