Good intent, bad timing

A demonstration today outside Kingston City Hall drew about 100 people who are upset that homeowners' property taxes could rise by nearly 15 percent next year.

The participants walked up and down the sidewalk, held signs and chanted their discontent with Mayor James Sottile's proposed city budget for 2009.

Just one problem: Today is Saturday. Wouldn't it have made more sense to do this on a weekday, with Sottile in the building and able to see the protest?
