Re: “Quick Bright Things: Shakespeare's "Dream" Is Lush But Loud in Germantown

What am I not understanding? I thought having a personal interpretive vision was the point.

Re: “The Foreskin Affair, Part Two

Ditto to Wintermute. Since we're in a somewhat gastric mode of valuation, may I say that none of these pithy 10 reasons is worth one small pellet of owl dung.

Re: “With Golfers Teed Off, Council Takes a Swing at Course Hours

Or cut Ricky Wilkins fees for the first 6 months of this year from $800,000 to the bargain basement price of $300,000!

Re: “Keith McGee Announces Retirement as City CAO: Updated

This is the best news this City has had in a long time. Any replacement - even a thick jerk - would be an improvement. Things can't help but improve.

Re: “The Pyramid: Too Big to Ignore

I'm glad someone finally said it - this building has to come down before some local politician in need of a photop comes up with a "great idea" for it.

Re: “Smart City and Friends

RDC supposedly has its own in-house public relations person, making it shameful that their p.r. and communications are sleepy and out of date. Weren't Tom Jones and Carol Coletta also working for the RDC? Virginia McLean is kicking all of their asses - and for free! The kind of sluggishness you describe results from a lack of real passion and a hands on commitment to the cause. You can't buy it with big pay checks. And you surely don't attract it to a board room filled with rich, celebrity types where the air is too rarified to breathe. Maybe they should just call it a day and go find real jobs.

Re: “Post-Election, Herenton Settles Accounts With Pollsters, Ford, Morris Et Al.

Fret not, UncleGDogg. Pay back is hell, and the Mayor is investing in his own payback. These back-at-you, in-your-face, kiss-my-ass comments of his are loading up the historical record. They are what they are, and even when the Mayor tries to spin them as assertions of strong leadership, he just makes them worse. Coupled with his failure to control, or even manage, the tax rate, the crime rate, the diminishing quality of duplicative city services, and the increasing level of cronyism and resultant corruption in local government, he should be recorded in posterity as the useless demagogue that he is determined to be. But he's right about one thing. This is all about him and not about us taxpaying citizens. If he excels in this next term, we win. If he fails, we . . . are proven accurate and the record of his worthless tenure is written. So the only one with anything on the line here is the Mayor - him and his leeches.
