"S" is for "snake" so says Havens

Police union head upset, Trib The president of Pittsburgh's police union called Mayor Tom Murphy a 'snake' ...

Business as usual.

"Murphy's sitting there saying the ICA board is wasting the taxpayers' money for trying to challenge the firefighters contract. Now he's wasting taxpayer money trying to appeal language in the police contract that was given to the firefighters."
My long-standing position has been announced and repeated often. Mayor Murphy needs to move to the private sector as soon as possible. The longer the city has the same crew within the Mayor's office, the steeper and quicker the decline. Holding out until the end of 2005 is going to make the recovery much more painful and worse.

Rather than name calling, I listen for a new tune. Many would do, such as:
  • Hit the road Jack.

  • Step on the bus, Gus.

  • These boots were made for walking.

  • Leaving, on a jet plane. Don't know when I'll be back again.

  • Where is the FOP Chorus Leader on those tunes?

    Get him out. Fill his parking space away with a broken police cruiser, garbage truck and public works van, -- hour by hour, day by day.
