The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

20 February 2005

The stick stops here

At least this week, since it has devolved upon me to issue the assignment to the Oklahoma Blogger Bash Consortium and One-Hour Photo for the coming six-day period.

A number of different cities are represented by the O.B.B.C./O.H.P., including the three largest in the state (Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Lawton) plus a 'burb or two. For the sake of argument, let's assume that you, the Consortium member, are prepared to address your Mayor and City Council or equivalent municipal governmental body.

What, in your opinion, is the one thing within the existing powers of the Mayor and Council that your city most desperately needs to do?

Papers are due in by 11:59 PM on Friday, 25 February.

Dang someone beat me to the "resign" answer. My next answer would have to be... Tattoo the identities of the "special interests" that they REALLY represent on their forehead. That way everyone knows where everyone else is coming from. Oh wait... tattooing is still illegal in OK. So much for my answer.

Having missed the last two consortium assignments, I guess I'll have to do this one. However, I may opt to lecture the Oklahoma City leadership rather than Edmond's.

Do I receive extra credit for brevity?

Dang, an assignment where I have to think rather than just post old rambling memories. The other problem is that I don't know what things are within their power (but at times, neither do they)
