From the Secret Squadron, high atop a mountainside overlooking the great metropolis of Pittsfield, The Planet moves sometimes undercover in the shades of night and other times, as here, within full view under the McDonald’s french fry lights of television. The Planet dutifully takes notes as John Barrett presents to the city council. Most of the writing took place out of camera range. A little bird has told us that Barrett, presently a consultant to the DPW revamping in Shire City, will before long be at the center of a large news story. Don’t tell anyone The Planet told you first.
