Mayor’s State of the City: Your reactions
I had my book club on Tuesday evening during the mayor’s State of the City address, so I didn’t hear it as it was happening, but I hard plenty about it on the local news when I arrived home that evening. The mayor said a lot during the speech, but the biggest hoopla to come out of the night were his remarks that the media is acting like a lynch mob against him and his blatant use of the N-word. I have to say, I was pretty stunned when I heard these elements of the speech recanted and analyzed on the 11 o’clock news. It was a bold move to defend himself during a time of political turmoil — but a very wrong move in my opinion. Kilpatrick should take a cue from Eliot Spitzer and resign with grace — and soon. The city and region, not to mention residents and businesses, will continue suffering otherwise.
