For the first time during his seven-year reign, Moncrief had to dust off the gavel and eject a few disrespectful protesters who kept interrupting proceedings to insist the discussion about the Rainbow Room raid was pushed to the very back of the agenda, as if to imply that was some sort of homophobic move by the city to "sweep it under the rug".
Uh, let me just say, as a former avid city council presentation speaker, barring Jim Lane when he would go on his burrito runs :) that council is in it for the long haul and will indeed stay until 1am if they have to when the last speaker has spoken -- as they did during this session. Moncrief gave these obnoxious tools many opportunities to calm down, but they kept shouting over him, forcing him to summon the marshals and remove 'em. Good times.
