HE WISHES (AND BEST WISHES) 

HE WISHES (AND BEST WISHES)

At last month's Gridiron Show at the Al Chymia Shrine Temple on Shelby Oaks, city councilman Brent Taylor made an unscheduled appearance onstage during a skit. He hung a pair of boxing gloves around the neck of the actor playing Mayor Willie Herenton, then draped a pillowcase over the face of the actress playing council mate Carol Chumney and escorted her offstage. It remains to be seen how completely life imitates art, but, for what it's worth, when Taylor showed up late for an appearance by Hizzoner during a council committee meeting this week, he apologized thusly: "Sorry, Mayor, I thought you said meet you outside." Yeah, you remember!
