Shorewood seems to be marching forward into the past. With few modifications our land assembly is being used to accommodate the past but clad in progressive rhetoric. Traditional practice often hides mistaken concepts, while the market accommodates the lowest of tastes.
Meanwhile politicians lie in wait until forced to act or better to flow with the stream. Plans are often another form of rhetoric serving as cover for politicians' inactions or faulty actions.
Where are the innovations that create, what we refer to as the future, coming from; business as usual, tradition, the market place? Shorewood's Village Board is so constructed and established that we can only expect to see that business is as usual, that only traditional approaches are taken to new problems and that we can view market solutions only by seeing to it that they don't fall off as they creak along on old tracks.
