Brookline Town Meeting

Brookline Town Meeting is in session right now; we met last night and we're meeting again tonight.

There's a lot of important issues we're debating. We just approved the town's $172 million budget. We're now offering only one health-care choice to town employees, so that it can be offered at a lower price, but the question is still in the air of when married same-sex couples will be offered benefits for the non-working spouse. Tonight we're once again debating a possible development project that would bring more money into the town, but at the risk of impacting a neighborhood, which itself is divided on the issue.

So what does the news media decide to focus on? The anti-spanking resolution.
