Full time mayor?

Rosenberg peers into a future day-in-the-life of a full-time mayor of Greensboro for his weekly N&R column.  A couple of my favorites on the to-do list for that particular day…

  • 10:10 a.m.: Check with physician: Is frequent leaking of RMA and other documents normal for mayors my age?

and this one… which is not so far-fetched…

  • 11:30 a.m.: Send someone to get Part 119 of Jerry Bledsoe’s “Cops in Black & White,” a chart graphing the regularity of David Wray’s bowel movements against the phases of the moon.

    White guilt? Ben, I ought to come over there and settle this Mid-Atlantic style with a Swinging Fisherman’s Suplex from which you would be unable to escape. I’d do it too, if I wasn’t fairly certain you’d thrash me with one hand while requesting documents with the other.

    A swingign fisherman’s suplex is not mid atalntic style. I would Wahoo chop you in the neck. Then I would …Wooooooooooo..now we go to school….Lock on the figure four…from which you would truly be unable to escape…then…during my interview after the match….I would challenge Tom phillips to a LUMBERJACK MATCH….I would have my folks…he could have his…that would be mid atlantic style.

    Tell me again; why do we need a mayor AND a city manager?

    I’m starting to wonder why we need department heads, engineers and city council members since we now have all these people rolled into one super human, omnipotent City Manager.
