Since the Animal Shelter Commission folks did their usual - which is to carefully avoid publicizing their meetings - I wasn't able to go to the most recent one.
But Andrea Grimes made it, thankfully, and live-blogged through the whole affair.

I particularly enjoyed her descriptions of Joey Zapata, the original We'll Look Into It guy. Larry Powell has also, although more subtly, alluded to Joey's amazing ability to look wide-eyed and scribble notes during these meetings. She also seems to have Rebecca Poling's modus operandi nailed down pretty well.
I hope you made it to the Tavern eventually, Andrea.
