MIRROR,MIRROR ON THE WALL 

MIRROR,MIRROR ON THE WALL

Editor's Note: For what it's worth, and for purposes of comparison with our perceptions of today, this is what ran in FLY ON THE WALL this time a year ago:

We at the Flyer are always looking for hard-hitting, investigative stories. However, when the sidewalks are covered in ice and the streets are a slushy mess, it s hard to pound the pavement in search of the truth. In times like these, sometimes we have to create the news. Trying to fill space, we wondered whether the rest of the world would be physically attracted to our city leaders. To find the answer to this question we posted pictures of Mayor W.W. Herenton and all of the city council members on the Am I Hot Or Not web site (http://www.amihotornot.com) so that people the world over could rate this city s, er, governing bodies on a scale of 1 to 10. We also posted Shelby County Mayor Jim Rout s photo but it was inexplicably rejected by the web site s monitors. Here are the results in no particular order:

  • E.C. Jones 4.9
  • Tajuan Stout Mitchell 2
  • Brent Taylor 5.6
  • Janet Hooks 4.6
  • John Vergos 5.1
  • Edmund Ford 3.9
  • Barbara Swearengen Holt 1.3
  • Joe Brown 6.4
  • Rickey Peete 6.2
  • Myron Lowery 4.2
  • Pat Vander Schaaf 1.6
  • Tom Marshall 7.5
  • Jack Sammons 7.7
  • Mayor W.W. Herenton 7.9
