Catch Phrase of the Day: “Moving Pieces”
Hoboken City Officials think residents are slow
As you very well know – the Mayor and some city council members are scrambling after Hoboken411 reported about the Municipal Garage relocation debacle. Issuing RFP’s after the fact, and “damage control” press releases (which still don’t deny a thing.)
At the City Council meeting last night, Council President Peter Cunningham dropped the phrase “moving pieces” quite a bit, insinuating that a city real estate transaction is too complicated for feeble residents to understand, and was one of the supposed reasons for not being transparent about the process.
Mayor Dawn Zimmer also used the phrase to justify their inadequate actions in a recent press release that added zero new information. One of the shadow Mayors must have dropped the phrase during internal communications is my guess.
Either way – it got me thinking: “Isn’t that the name of a Rush album? “Moving Pieces?”
Nope, I was wrong – that album was “Moving Pictures.” Close, though. However, I did find a Rush song that sort of encapsulates this whole process in one fell swoop: Rush – Fly By Night, which is exactly what the city was doing, attempting to blast this transaction through under the cover of darkness.
So without further adieu, one of the better classic rock songs from back in the day:
Enjoy your beautiful evening!
