Huckleberries Hears …

... That some at City Hall aren't happy with Councilman Dan Gookin, who made a post on his YouTube account of a recent interaction with a female speaker during the public comment period who claimed that former Vice President Dick Cheney was a Darth Vader. In the 1:22-minute video, Councilman Ron Edinger asks who she'd referred to as Darth Vader. To which the woman responded, "Dick Cheney." Then, Gookin interjects: "If Dick Cheney is Dark Vader, who is the Emperor?" From the side, Councilman Mike Kennedy can be heard to say to Gookin, "Enough." And then to the female: "He was being silly." There may be a move afoot to ask Gookin to remove the video from his YouTube site.
