Blake Moore Has Delusions

Dear Source:
I enjoyed Anna Clarke's comments on Ms. Blake Moore's lengthy critique of Clarke's initial letter to her. I particularly enjoyed Clarke's response to this passage in the continental expert's letter:
Ms. Blake Moore, if I moved to "your" territory, it would be a very long time before I even thought about trying to make changes within "your" community. You said in your initial response to my letter that, in reference my being here for 22 years, "In that amount of time I would have turned the place up on its ear. It would be bouncing to my rhythm…"
Seems to me that Ms. Blake Moore has serious delusions of grandeur–presidential grandeur that is. Probably envisions herself standing in Emancipation Garden and proclaiming, "Mission accomplished."
