With all the disturbing news of scandals and layoffs, I thought I would provide a quick break. I go to this video often, and I hope everyone can enjoy my favorite hilarious public comment.

It’s a great example of what City Council members and County Supervisors have to deal with on a consistent basis.

It’s video from the public comment portion of a Santa Cruz City Council meeting in May of 2008. The video that evokes great memories of Miss South Carolina in the Miss Teen USA Contest in 2007.

She makes so many great points. It’s amazing the Council didn’t think of this before.

Alex Leo’s piece about the video on The Huffington Post picked out some favorite quotes from the young lady in the video, including this gem:

I think that we should make a perfect pesticide for the crops but it’s good for people and healthy and keeps the crops preserved too because we need the food because it’s food and stuff.

The “thanks, now go away please” style response from the City Council is a nice little highlight as well.

Hope you enjoyed the break.
