I wonder what de Tocqueville would think of a public state (Wa in US) Forest Practices Board meetng I attended yesterday, in which an "aristocratic" small forest landowner used "full consciousness of [his] authority" to force the Board to reconvene privately by refusing to leave the Public Comment table, thus preventng me of the opportunity to comment myself?

Also, regarding a "people already versed in the conduct of an administration", don't these career public administrators love to jibber-jabber about jibber-jabber? (Based on observations over the past couple years trying to save trees from logging by commenting in public meetings ...)
