At the beach…

But before leaving, I finished a quick little look at the Town Hall meeting phenomenon, from a  historical and semantic point of view. Research for the piece took me to the Library of Congress, where I spent some time with Frank M. Bryan’s “Real Democracy: The New England Town Hall Meeeting and How it Works.” A good look at the present state of the town meeting as an actual form of governance. Worth hunting down in used book stores.
