Young Philly Politics had an interesting piece yesterday
on the strange/incongruous two-facedness of our current Mayor.
Reformer John and Tammany John. Two people who would hate each other if they ever met.
That seems to get to the heart of why I find all this "bugged office" investigation coverage so frustrating -- less because government payola is such a shock than because there seems to be so little room left for good intentions and principled programs. There was a while when some good things appeared to be getting done. I hope it doesn't all come to an end because the Mayor's Evil Twin was so busy behind closed doors . . .
