Audience lacked courtesy at Mirror Pond meeting

I attended a Feb. 12 public meeting regarding Mirror Pond that was hosted by the Mirror Pond Steering Committee and moderated by Jim Figurski.

First, I would like to sincerely thank Figurski for conducting a professional and informative meeting under what I would consider trying circumstances. Second, I was shocked by the lack of courtesy and respect that many in attendance displayed. There is an appropriate, respectful way to provide constructive feedback and to solicit further discourse. However, the behavior I witnessed was no better than what I see on MSNBC and Fox News each day.

Shame on you people!
