- City Council this week approved Michael's proposal to memorialize seven slain officers by placing their names and badge numbers on the streets where they lived and died.
- Michael and City Council also sat down for a closed-door meeting to discuss the city's budget crisis, and where cuts have to be made.
- Maybe Michael can take comfort in the fact that he's far from the only mayor whose city is being absolutely screwed by the economy (and years of sub-par financial management) right now.
- Michael's offerings in the traditional mayoral bet on the World Series are, in a word, inadequate. Michael's is putting up cheesesteaks, Tastykakes, soft pretzels, mac n cheese, a Rocky statue; compare that to what three Tampa-area mayors are putting up: stone crab claws, a Cubano sandwich, key-lime pie, and hand-rolled Cuban cigars. We must have something better to offer, Mr. Mayor.
