Barry, doing his job?

"Five minutes later, Barry sauntered into the hearing room, tieless, wearing a cool blue shirt and a tweed sports jacket. He limped slightly but otherwise looked fresh and alert, displaying few signs of the ill health that has dogged him since he took office, ruined his council attendance record and sent him to the hospital three times.'Good morning!' Barry declared, settling into the chairman's seat. He read an opening statement, turned to his colleagues for opening remarks, then finally summoned the first witness from a list of 127 at 11:15 a.m., one hour and 15 minutes late.Barry cautioned speakers to keep their testimony brief or the hearing could go on all night. In the end, Barry presided until well past 6 p.m." WP
