What the heck are you talking about? Ultimately, it's quite trivial, but, the UHub posts make it abundantly clear that Flynn was always opposed to the proposal to push the closing hour back to 3 am. The 2nd post even included a link to the first one, underscoring that Flynn's oppositional stance was unwavering . . . I'm really perplexed as to how you deduced there was a change in his stance.
First UHub post:
"Through an aide, City Councilor Ed Flynn, whose district includes the downtown part of New England's largest city, told the board today that 3 a.m. is just too late a closing time
for any Boston restaurant and so opposes the later closing time."
Second UHub post:
"City Councilor Ed Flynn, who represents downtown, had opposed the half-hour increase
in hours, saying 3 a.m. closing times are just too late for New England's largest city."
