More on the ANC and Morgan's Seafood's liquor license

The City Paper has a long piece on the meeting about Morgan's Seafood's application for a liquor license, which according to Romeo Morgan (who the City Paper described accurately as a "charismatic Rastafarian") has been pending for more than 200 days.

Basically, they moved the meeting to Morgan's to try to make it more informal and less heated. There was still some arguments, but it seems like they're at least trying to compromise. Some neighbors supported Morgan, while some were opposed to more booze in the area, then an older resident was the voice of reason.

One thing I disagree with is the author's suggestion that Morgan was the cause for ANC chair Cliff Valenti to resign -- I think that was more differences with other ANC commissioners, like when Lenwood Johnson and Valenti had a falling out over Johnson wearing a Fenty sticker to a meeting, and then all hell broke loose.
