  1. I found it interesting about Betty’s comment about being a clone on the Council. With Frank on the Council she seemed to be. Maybe now that she doesn’t have Frank to bounce off of she’ll sing a different song…..so long as it isn’t a long song. She has been known to go on and on and on.

    Gee, Nancy, What will you do now that you don’t have Frank Venti on the Council. Maybe now the Council can truly work for the good of the city.
