Here’s The Scoop…Banish The “King”…

HOW TO BE A KING…

In an article on Monday Jan 5,2009…… the Miami Herald covering actress Meryl Streep had a  great story….the actress loves to tell…’about how one learns to be king’…it was from her days at Yale Drama School…’the instructor asked the students how to portray a monarch.”and everybody said,’Oh, you are assertive’ and people would say’ Oh you speak in a slightly deeper voice.’ And the teacher said ‘Wrong. The way to be king is to have everyone in the room quiet when you come in.’ The atmosphere changes.It’s up to everybody else to make you king. I thought that was really powerful information.’

HOW TO BANISH THE “KING”….

This story really hit home with this writer…because I know this is the case with the Vice Mayor…de-facto VFD Chief…He too gets his “power” when the room gets quiet…whether it’s in Jarvis Hall…Town Hall…the VFD or the CIC…..

A little story of how to banish the LBTS “King”…..

Ignore him…… do not listen to his stories…do not give him his “strength” to flex his muscle…exert his control……be a bully… by dismissing him…universally…( in a town-wide sense)….a kind of “banishment…of the LBTS “King”…It’s worked before…

As written in the Sausage Series…for a time…at the beginning of getting ready for  January  2008 election…his “minions”…got together without him for the very first time…and ended up comparing notes after yet another one of the “King’s” many outbursts….only to find out about all the confidential information he was entrusted with and proceeded to tell others… How he perpetrated acts that produced the expected results….. We then looked at each other with a jaundiced eye…(a very king-like way of divide and conquer)…ensuring and enabling his power….

Outraged and disillusioned by this discovery……we  banished the LBTS ” King”….he was not welcome in our homes…he had no place to go to tell  his latest “big scoop”…to regale in his dais antics…and no one to listen to his “David VS Goliath” stories….all culminating  one night in a planned walkout from a commission meeting in Jarvis Hall leaving only his “Queen” …

The result ….he wilted…he was alone…and there was quiet…but it was not from the room….nope…not this time …. it was from the LBTS “King”!….

Unfortunately it did not last….Democracy did not last….Equality did not last….Quieting the LBTS “King”….did not last….

“Peace” was called for from those not privy to the King’s “rule”……..and “promises” were made by the few left in his “court”……Knowing full well that neither would last ….we “held our noses”…( as Cristie Furth so aptly put it…)..

We let the LBTS ” King” back in…to stand at our doorsteps once more……to enter the room…all in order to win the “coveted” dais….for the “greater good”of the LBTS “Kingdom”………

Unfortunately …..we all know how that turned out….

In other words…

This ain’t no fairytale and the Vice Mayor ain’t no King….

It’s time to banish the “king”….

more to come…
