I regret the harsh tone I took against Councilman Fraser in this interview with Mark Reardon. Councilman Fraser is a very nice lady who I am sure is also a very skillful lawmaker. She has alway been very nice to me. I am also sure she means well with her ban and does not think she is threatening small business people in St. Louis County. But I know that she is making many of these business people sick with worry. One bar owner who had just installed air cleaners burst into tears when he heard of her intentions. It is hard for me not to push back in every way possible in their defense.
