Why can't the media and the blogosphere leave our hard-golfing, excuse-making, verging on morally compromised mayor alone?
At 27, Mayor Luke Ravenstahl is young, but he wasn't born last night. He knows a lot of the criticism of his official conduct is the result of jealousy, ageism and irrational resentment at what he's been able to accomplish with little or no effort.
Get over it! Mayor Luke is committed to exercising every prerogative at his disposal now that he's been spared the indignity of finishing his first term in elected office as an obscure councilman from the North Side.
Let those who would refuse to use the prestige of the mayor's office to score access to Kenny Chesney or Tiger Woods cast the first stone. This mayor isn't afraid to look like a goofy, fawning fan boy for the sake of an autograph.
Go read Tony's column. You could use the chuckle.
