Despite Article, Meeting goes on without Casualties

There were a few raised voices, a lot of finger pointing and and a couple attempts to induce tears, but NO ONE WAS KILLED. Repeat, there were no casualties at Monday night’s Eden Township District hearing. Thank God! You might ask, why would there be any death? According the Karen Holzmeister’s Daily Review article last weekend, the scene at the San Leandro Library might have been something out of the film Tombstone without, of course, Val Kilmer. Here’s the lede from that article:

Tonight’s showdown on the future of San Leandro Hospital could be as gritty and tense as the moments before the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral.

Politics and business concerns drive both proponents and opponents of closing San Leandro Hospital, and the same motives spurred the Oct. 26, 1881, shootout pitting the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday against the Clantons and their cowboy crowd.

I would say that’s quite an unfortunate use of hyperbole, but again, nobody was hurt. Besides, you can’t carry a loaded weapon in California.
