Four council members ‘had Esau’s judgment’

Dear editor,

Re: City council members vote to give up right to put items on agenda.

In the Old Testament book of Genesis (25: 29-34), Isaac’s elder son, Esau, comes in from a hard day’s work, tired and hungry.

Jacob, his younger brother, has a hot meal ready, but he won’t give Esau anything to eat unless he gets his brother’s birthright in return.

So, Esau trades his birthright for a bowl of stew.

Four of our city council members displayed wisdom equal to Esau’s at the council meeting on Monday, Aug. 13.

Yours truly,
