Not to mention a grandstanding wacko who thinks the answer to Birmingham’s problems is to incur new debt of $154 million. Yeah, I know municipalities sometimes must borrow for big capital expenditures, but with Larry’s record of debt management, the City Council would be crazy to go along with him.
As for the litterbug part, watch closely at the beginning of the video. This is just more Larry hypocrisy, exhorting neighborhoods to clean up after themselves (as they should) while he tosses his cigarette butts in the gutter. Sort of like his sackcloth and Rolex ensemble. Way to lead by example, Larry.
I heard through the grapevine that one of those poor officers made the mistake of locking his knees during the mayor’s presentation of his super-duper top-secret plan. Those of us who remember marching band days know what happens when you lock your knees. He apparently passed out and hit the floor, gun and all.
Or perhaps he was simply overcome by Larry’s awesomeness. Yeah, that must have been it.
