I got up early this morning, while the rest of the house was asleep, and booted up my laptop, as eager as a kid on Christmas morning.
Yesterday an anonymous commenter on the blog ElPasoSpeak.com had promised that all my questions about the disputed communications between the City and Union Pacific would be revealed in an article in the El Paso Times.
Well, they weren’t. At least not in my anonymized browser version of the online edition.
I put on my slippers and walked down to the newspaper vending machine on the corner. I thought, soon these machines will be as obsolete as phone booths.
I was late to that party. The machine hadn’t been stocked, and the price was still posted at seventy five cents.
Turns out newspaper vending machines are already as obsolete as phone booths.
So I stole the neighbor’s paper.
To no avail. Still no story about the lost emails.
I wrapped the rubber band around it and threw the paper onto the neighbor’s porch.
It’s been four days since District 8 Representative Cortney Niland said the City had emails and recordings of conversations with Union Pacific discussing the acquisition of the rail yard site for the arena. Union Pacific denies that such conversations took place.
We wanna see the emails.
