What's Going on In Saratoga Springs?

It's hard to determine what the woman in the video is trying to do here.  Was it just a joke, or is there some sort of deeper meaning here? Either way, we're baffled.

The incident happened on Tuesday night at the Saratoga Springs City Council meeting and was shared Thursday morning on the Facebook page of WRGB, CBS 6.

City council meetings allow residents to air their ideas or issues. The public city council must allow the public to participate in meetings as provided by law and may use up to three minutes to voice their concerns.

I don't have the mental capacity - or the patience - to figure any of it out, all I know is that (at the VERY least) it's quite bizarre.

Patience Childbirth

Oh, and speaking of "patience", the woman in the video refers to her as "Patience Childbirth" and then bows before addressing the members of the Saratoga Springs City Council as "Your Lord" and "Your Lordesses".

Patience tells the public council that, "She lives in one of the stables in Saratoga, owned by the King, who imprisons his daughters...Google it."

Dressed in a red handmaid costume, Childbirth would go on to say that "the king" invested 60 million dollars into Saratoga, and that because she's a woman, she's not allowed to own land.

Chuckles in the Crowd

There were a few chuckles in the crowd, and even Childbirth herself broke out a little laugh as she carried on with her speech.

At one point, the man running the meeting heard enough and made a subtle attempt to move on to the next speaker.  But Childbirth stopped him mid-sentence to let him know that she still had a few more seconds left of her allotted 3-minute limit.

Then she went into a diatribe about Stewart's "Civility" Ice Cream.

Heartwrenching Look at Beloved Upstate NY Concert Venue Before Demolition

WARNING: Under no circumstances should you enter this property. By doing so you risk bodily harm and/or prosecution for trespassing on private property.

The Starlite Music Theater opened in 1957 and was a popular venue located in Latham. There were many acts that passed through the Starlite until 1997. It was a 3,000-seat theater in the round. In the 1980s I saw Belinda Carlisle of the Go Go's at the Starlite Music Theater. Kenny Rogers, The Monkees, Weird Al Yankovic, Jonny Cash, Run DMC, Diana Ross, and more graced the stage. The Starlite closed its doors in 1998 and laid dormant for years. Then in December 2012, the Starlite was demolished. Here are pictures of the venue in the summer of 2012 before it was leveled.
