County Councilwoman Barbra Gelman last week attributed her confusion over an ethics code vote to a "senior moment." Since then the phrase has popped up in News Tribune stories and an editorial in today’s paper.
Gelman says she’s heard from several people who sympathize, having endured senior moments of their own. But in the future she hopes we’ll adopt a different description.
"It’s not going to be `senior moment’ anymore," Gelman said Tuesday. "It’s going to be `junior moment.’"
