No News In Cleveland???

"Brian's mother: What star sign is he?
Wise Man #2: Capricorn

Brian's Mother: Capricorn, eh? What are they like?

Wise Man #2: He is the son of God, our Messiah

Wise Man #1: The King of the Jews

Brian's Mother: And that's Capricorn, is it?
Wise Man #3: No, No that's just him.

Brian's Mother: Oh, I was gonna say, otherwise there'd be a lot of them."
(A little holiday Monty Python)

So, the Mayor issued nearly a press release a day in September and October 2005. She even issued four press releases on the days before the election in November. Since November 7th there were only two releases issued and both announce the holiday meals in Cleveland. So, there is nothing going on in Cleveland except that poor people need to know where to eat a holiday meal? Are there so many poor people in the City that this is the only business going on? Could the press office be considered a political office engaged in electioneering since the they practically shut down on the day after the election? Not even a note to the voters about her loss or a note about the amount of money brought in from the red light cameras? How about a release on the festive decorations in City Hall or some mention of the sweet deal offered to her supporters in the Fire Department union and how that was not political payback? Maybe the Mayor is auditioning for a job at United Way and can point to her experience in notifying the residents of the City where to get a holiday meal in her final days? Happy Holidays, Mayor. Good luck in your next job, and thanks for letting us know where to get a free meal.
