Don’t damn city for political hay

The famous Berkeley resolution to end the bombing as soon as possible has brought derision as well as admiration from around the globe. Too bad the mayor had to put it in its worse light in order to make political capital at home. If she thought so ill of it why didn’t she just vote no instead of merely abstaining? 

Her famous hand-wringing act is getting stale. The comic opera is wearing thin. What the City Council needs is leadership and substance, not play-acting. You don’t have to have a majority on the city council to show true leadership – just honesty and guts. 

When will the fat lady stop singing?
