Is This the Way To Spend Your 53rd Wedding Anniversary?
It was a long night. On August 24, Bethlehem's Zoning Hearing Board heard five appeals. Their night began at 7 PM, and they heard cases for three and a half hours with no recess. Not even a bathroom break. But between cases, zoner Bill Fitzpatrick did announce that it was Chairman Gus Loupos' 53rd wedding anniversary, and the room erupted in applause.
"Everyone else is appreciative, but my wife is not too happy," responded the Chair. Somebody blurted out, "At least there are witnesses to prove you're here."
