The Colorado Springs City Council will hold a “retreat” this weekend at Glen Eyrie between 6-9 PM on Friday evening, May 10, and continuing from 8AM – 5PM on Saturday, May 11.

No further details were available. No agenda was posted. The location was described only as “Glen Erie – Pink House” (talk about conspicuous misspelling!).

The retreat is open to the public. Given the time and location, it’s hard to imagine that any members of the ill-paid press corps will voluntarily submit to such torture, but we all have editors!

I had hoped to attend – but I have a previous commitment. Martini Shot is playing at Southside Johnny’s Friday night, and someone has to dance and have fun…Council, I’ll be thinking about you when the band kicks in to “Casey Jones.”

“Trouble ahead, lady in red,
Take my advice you’d be better off dead.
Switchman’s sleeping, train hundred and two is
On the wrong track and headed for you.”
