First a pirla, now a Nutter

Mayor Nutter — Wednesday, March 24
Mayor Nutter had a tough 2009, fighting with City Council about the city budget and other issues and then having to coax financial help from the state General Assembly to balance a budget deficit. Come talk with the mayor about how the city teetered on the edge but did not topple into the fiscal abyss.

And does Dave Bing, mayor of Detroit. Detroit makes Philly look pretty damned solvent.

Marco, part of the joy is that he made his name as a somber technocrat and has lived up to that role. The humor works on two levels.

Bing is no doubt a better basketball player than Michael Nutter, though. Nutter may be a good ballhandler, but he's a pretty short guy.

Our two representatives Lupi (Lupo ) and Ratti (Ratto ),are always gnawing at the Mayor and his cohorts in the City Council.

Our Nutter is not beset with rats and wolves.
