Readers of this blog know that I have been finding Mayor Ed in denial of the allegations that have permeated his administration. Two subordinates have pleaded guilty to illegal acts, supposedly at his direction. I have also noted here that Pawlowski now seems much more interested in indentifying himself with the little people, as in the marginalized and downtrodden. Activist Robert Trotner felt that in his Easter Sunday facebook post, Ed was perhaps comparing himself with Jesus.
A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act. Mahatma GandhiWhile such an interpretation is beyond my meager psychology and theology background, I find it plausible. Anyway, realizing that he's not resigning, I would prefer Ed just to concentrate on the nuts and bolts of running the city, rather than the redemption of mankind. However, I am sensitive enough to realize that at best, this must be a stressful time for him.
