I was not surprised that Mayor Marchand didn’t appear at the Save Our Town rally on Saturday. To appear would have been politically incorrect. I was also not surprised that he said rallies like this make no difference, because they don’t, to him. I was also not surprised when he told the press that businesses will reopen when the data show “it’s safe.” What I am surprised about is that he doesn’t know that “when it’s safe” means “never.”
