I had a conversation with one of the ABCs. His comment: “It didn’t look like they were close to an agreement.” This does not come from an attendee, but from the proverbial “knowledgeable source”: The statement following the meeting  said that eleven people attended. What it didn’t say was that a twelfth person (the 76th vote) had confirmed intention to attend–but was a no-show. After the meeting, one of the ABCs called Craddick’s office and related everything that happened. These guys had better get their act together. They are running out of time.
